Our Main Sunday service at St. Mary's is Good News at Ten at 10:00.
The music is led by a worship band including a singing group, with Holy Communion each week. The preaching and teaching tends to be interactive, geared for all ages including families and uses a mixture of visual material, as well as the more familiar ways of Biblical teaching.
We always welcome visitors to our services. The baptism of children usually takes place within our main service. The children will be invited to join together for their own fun during the service with activities just for them.
At the end of each service, in the side chapel, there is opportunity to respond to the message where help is offered through a 'ministry' team who offer prayer for healing and other needs
On the third Sunday of each month we hold Family Church in the Church Hall (next to the Church, accessed from Hillfield Lane). This starts at 5pm and ends around 6pm with food. This is a relaxed service, suitable for all ages.
Our Midweek Holy Communion service is held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday mornings, each month, at 10:30. On the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays we have prayer meetings, also starting at 10.30pm.
On most first Fridays of the month, we have Messy Church at William Shrewsbury Primary School on Church Road. This starts as soon as the children have finished school, at 3.10pm.
Every Friday morning we hold a Community Café in the church hall. This is an opportunity for anyone to come along to meet or make friends. Home-made cake and other snacks are served with good quality hot drinks.
Stretton Lunch club meet most first Mondays of the month. This is for more our more senior citizens from the area to come together to enjoy a hot two-course meal and a variety of entertainment.
