What's coming up at St Mary's?
Got questions about life and the Christian faith?
We will be running an evening course to explore the basics of the Christian faith through a series of talks and discussions over tea & cake, for anyone who would like to attend.
The course started on
Wednesday, 27 April at 7pm
here at St Mary’s.
If you would like to come, please let Peter Wood know
or email the Office and Reception Team.
Tuesday Afternoon Fellowship
24 May at 2.30pm
We meet each week in Rooms 3&4 for an informal time with singing, prayer and a thought from the Bible, followed by refreshments.
Join us if you can,
you would be most welcome.
Contact: Lesley Holland
If you live alone and would enjoy a cup of tea or coffee on a Wednesday morning, then please call in and see us. Chocolate biscuits make a frequent appearance!
We can usually be found in Rooms 3&4 between 10.30am and 12 noon ...
... but on the fourth Wednesday each month
we meet at 12 noon and enjoy having lunch together.
For various reasons we have fewer volunteer cooks these days.
If you enjoy cooking, have the relevant certificates and time to spare
please contact Judy through the Church Office,
You won't be alone in the kitchen, willing assistants are always available!

Thursday, 9 June - Summer Concerts
The 2022 Summer Series begins with
Robert & Linda – Piano à Deux at 1.15pm.
Sandwiches will be available, on a cash basis, from 12.30.
These charity concerts are performed by first-class musicians who we pay for their time and expertise. Only by your generous giving are we also able to support St Mary’s church, and this year’s charity – Keys of Change which brings classical music, often for the first time, to deprived or suffering audiences, in remote areas of the Amazon basin, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Kolkata and the tsunami-ravaged Fukushima area in Japan, as well as in Greece and London.
To quote from the charity's website:
“Our music has brought alive emotions,
fascination, happiness, tears of sadness,
and generated hope and encouragement.”
