All Age Worship (Family Service)
Our All Age Worship takes place on the 1st Sunday of the month. As mentioned in the name, this service is for all ages, but we do provide age appropriate worship aimed at children & families. Please note that at this time, we are not yet running our Creche and pre-school/toddler group during the service.
We welcome everyone to join us as we praise and worship our Heavenly Father in an amazing variety of ways. These services will be led by our AAW Team made up of members of the congregation who are gifted in leading and speaking in a more relaxed manner which appeals to all ages. We try to especially engage with families with young children. The service can encompass bible readings, action songs, prayers led by the children and young people, drama, dance, and quizzes with sweets and chocolate thrown in to encourage participation! We might even get a visit from our resident GAP (God's Amazing Puppets) puppet's, TJ and Annie-Mae.
If you would like to join us for any our services, please sign-up following this link: https://www.stmaryshg.org.uk/sunday-service-sign-up

Christianity Explored Course
Join us on Zoom for our online Christianity Explored Course.
A relaxed look at who Jesus, why he came and why he's the best news in the world!
We'll read from the Bible about his life, watch a short video explaining more & then have time to ask questions and chat if you'd like to. You can ask any questions you want or just sit and listen.
It's a 7-week course but you don't need to commit straight away - why not try it for one session and see what you think.
If you'd like to join us, please let us know on [email protected] or call 0161 336 4529. Please let us know the days & times that would suit you and we will arrange it for when most can make it.

Donations can be dropped off from 2-4pm. For food parcel pickups, you will be given a timeslot upon booking, this will be between 3:30-4pm.
If you would like to donate to the foodbank, you can drop off at St. Mary's foodbank during our opening hours above, use the drop off points at Morrison's or Sainsbury's in Denton or Tesco's in Haughton Green. You can also drop off any donations with the Vicar, at the Rectory (the first house after the Church Centre), or contact through the Facebook page if this isn't convenient.
We are running on a pre-booked parcels only system. If you require a parcel, the only way this can be booked is to phone or text the foodbank number. You will then be given a time slot to pick up your parcel. We cannot accept any referrals by email or contacting through the Facebook page.
A huge thank you to all who support families in the area, through donations of food. We really do appreciate all our community does to help. We also thank you for your co-operation and patience during these times of change.
