St Mary's Sandsend
Welcome to our church page! St Mary's is a small church in the valley of Sandsend, and has a very friendly community. We are part of a Benefice of six churches, led by our Rector, the Rev. Capt. Malcolm Jackson, who is assisted by our retired priest, Rev. Josephine Evetts-Secker, and our Reader/Lay Minister, Dr Gill Boag-Munroe. We also have a Recognised Parish Assistant in Sandsend: Helen Lloyd. Between us, we hold three services weekly within the Benefice churches: usually there are two Eucharist services and a Morning Praise. We would be absolutely delighted to welcome you to any of our services.
We also have our Coffee and Quack sessions at 1030 each Wednesday morning, which alternate between Hinderwell and Sandsend: again, we love to welcome new people.
