The church dates from the 12th century. It was the mother church for the local area until the late 19th century The church description will give you a good idea of some of its more obvious features, a modern one of which is the millennium window. The annual church meeting (APCM) report for last year summarizes many of its last year’s activities; please contact any of those mentioned if you would like to get involved.
The monthly pew sheet gives all of the topical information. Casting a slightly wider net, The Rock is the excellent newspaper of the group ministry – a good read if ever there was one! The people and links page is self evident as are those for the services, stop press, feedback and things of interest. The What’s on page promotes some, intentionally all, of the planned activities.
My apologies if some pages on this site seem to be a little odd on the latest version of Internet Explorer or Firefox. A solution is being worked on (but slowly, I’m afraid). Some of the downloads might have to be copied first if you want to print them.
These services have now finished for 2017 but watch out for them in 2018!
St Mary’s – Sunday Time Afternoon Teas
St Mary’s Summer Time Teas will be back again this year! Last year they were wonderful and there is every reason to suppose they will be even better this year! The dates will be:
- 27 May
- 10 June
- 15 July
- 12 August
Well done and thank you to all those many who have contributed in any way in the past: making cakes, serving the teas or consuming both. We have an amazing team of volunteers and we are always looking for more to serve or make cakes. If you are willing to offer time or bake a cake, all on a rota basis, then please contact church authority.
We are here to worship God, welcome all, and grow together in faith and love.
