Welcome to St Mary’s!

During the service you might like to know…


Children sometimes make a noise, and that is fine! If you weren’t given a toy bag, please ask for one. Children are welcome to bring their parents to Sunday School (we’ll let you know when it’s time to go out – just before the Gloria.)


All Christians are welcome to join us in taking the bread and wine. If you need a gluten free wafer or alcohol-free wine, please tell one of our Welcomers. If you prefer to receive a blessing, or to stay in your pew that’s also fine.


If you have a concern, details for our safeguarding team can be found in the weekly bulletin (pew sheet) and on our ‘Safer Church’ posters.

If you feel unwell

If you feel unwell or need anything during the service, anyone sitting near you will be happy to help.


We have two including a disabled toiler with a baby-changing table: go through the doors at the back of the church and then take the door to the left.

A collection

A collection (cash or card) during the service helps to pay for the costs of running the church. If you are a tax payer, please use a Gift Aid envelope to add an extra 25p per £1 given.


Please join us for coffee and a chat after the service in the refectory at the back of the church.
