Developing our Faith

We have several home groups / study groups. One is most Thursday evenings at 8pm on The Manor Estate, one is most Thursday mornings at Church after the 9.30am Eucharist and there is a monthly group which prays specifically for health and healing. Throughout the year there are Lent and Advent study groups as well as other meetings and occasions for nurturing faith and spirituality.

Every third Tuesday morning we hold services at both Florence Longman House and Watermill Care Home.

Messy Church

Messy Church
Messy Church

The first Messy Church at St Mary’s was held in January 2013 and now takes place every month (normally on the third Sunday of the month) from 3pm to 5.30pm. So what is it all about – it is a church for adults and children and its fun. It includes some creative time to explore a biblical theme with music, drama, dance, games and mess. The afternoon finishes with a simple meal together. So why not come and join us?
