St Mary's is open again for public worship and we can sing!

1 Aug 2021, 4 p.m.

Having been closed for several months due to Covid, our churches  reopened in time for Easter.  We are still taking covid precautions, but it has been good to start to sing hymns in our services again!

For details of Children's activities,  school collective worship etc please see our parish website

Lord God, at this time of pandemic
let us foster respect and solidarity with others, especially those who are weak or vulnerable.
Let us remain calm and ignore unsubstantiated rumours.
Let us attend to moments of prayer.
Let us cultivate responsibility, patience and hope.
Give us the grace to hear your voice,
and the strength to continue working for your kingdom.
May we meet new challenges bravely, sure in the faith that while much is uncertain, and life changes around us, you are ever the same, guiding us with your wisdom and protecting us with your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
