Advent and Christmas 2020

After what has been such a difficult year, we want you to know that you are very much in our thoughts and prayers this Christmas. Although the season will feel very different, we hope you find the opportunity to be with your loved ones and to celebrate once again the amazing story of the birth of Jesus. As a little bit of cheer, a Christmas card to you from the church and St Mary's school is available to download at the bottom of this page.
