Bottesford: St Mary the Virgin
WE'RE OPEN! WELCOME TO ST MARY'S
We are delighted that from Tuesday 23rd June we will be open for private prayer and personal reflection – please come in and spend some time here.
For the time being the church cannot open for other purposes such as worship, weddings, guided tours or social activities. Whilst these things are not permitted we have closed parts of the church to reduce the need for cleaning, protect our volunteers and respect government guidelines.
We will initially be open for private prayer and personal reflection Monday to Saturday from 10.00am to midday. Other times may be added in due course.
For details of our Sunday worship please see the St. Mary's website or Facebook page.
We are providing a weekly worship video and newsletter with prayers and reflections which are available on our website and our Facebook page. You can also be added to our email distribution list, please email [email protected] to be added. There will also be information and resources on our church website at www.stmarysbottesford.co.uk to help everyone remain in touch and stay connected to our church family, including a wonderful range of activities for families, entitled Faith at Home for Families. If you need to speak to Rev David please call 019149 843348.
We look forward to the day when we are back worshipping together. God hasn't gone away and we are continuing in our prayers and loving service offered in his name.
