to St Mary's
We aim to be a church where everyone can make friends and find their place. At St Mary's you will find space to discover more about God and the Christian faith, have time for prayer and reflection as well as make new friends. Our role in the community is very important to us and we seek to support local and wider communities through our lives, prayer and action in the love of Christ.
We are taking part in the Share the Light initiative this year. You can see the clip here.
Further to the latest government and diocesan guidance, our church services are currently suspended.
In December we are planning to hold 8.30am services on Sunday 6th, 13th, 20th & 27th. If you would like to attend one of these services, you will need to book a place in advance, as capacity is limited. Contact our administrator, Julie, in the office (details below) to book. Facemasks must be worn.
Our online services are continuing and are available via the links below.
The church building will be open for private prayer twice a week on Wednesdays between 10am and 2pm and on Sundays between 11am and 2pm. PLEASE NOTE: The church will not be open for private prayer on Wednesday 25th November. This follows a detailed risk assessment of the church to apply the Guidance from the Diocese. There will be social distancing in place, many areas of the church will be inaccessible and only a limited number of pews will be available. The toilet and kitchen will NOT be in use. You may need to wait outside the building for a short while if no space is available.
We have a Prayer Line in place to provide support for this season - details are on our Prayer Page.
In our Benefice we have a range of online resources for both adults and children on the YouTube channel below, and on the Wychert Vale website, check them out!
