Life at St Mary’s

Unusual times

Life in the UK has certainly changed drastically in the last few weeks. No public services, no concerts or fund raising events and we are all bunkered down and either self isolating or keeping social distancing. Services are discontinued at present but each morning at 9am the church bells ring out and the Rector takes a prayer service. St Mary’s is a very large church so if you wish you can join her but keep your distance and if you show any signs of coronavirus stay at home please.

We shall continue with our weekly newsletters and for those who are unable to access them online they are being delivered by hand by considerate helpers. Similarly any needs we hope we can cater for, some may take longer than others. Just ring 01483 542303. Most importantly we must continue to remember all in our prayers and thoughts and remember the assurance that we are all loved by God and his hands protect us.

He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On Him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers” 2 Corinthians Verses 10-11
