Church Service and Private Prayer

St Mary's is re-opening for a morning service every Sunday at 10:30am. The first service, on 5th July, will be Morning Prayer.

There will be some changes from our old routine. We will ask you to:

  • observe social distancing throughout your time in church and in the churchyard;
  • complete a register on entry (in case we need to “Track & Trace”);
  • sit where you are asked to by the Churchwardens, and remain in your seat;
  • after the service, leave under the direction of the Churchwardens.

In addition, there will be:

  • no singing – the organ will be played;
  • no tea/coffee after the service.

After the service the church will be open for private prayer until 3pm. This replaces Saturday private prayer (the church will not be open on Saturday 4th July).

Read the COVID-19 notices in church and follow social distancing guidelines to keep everyone safe. In particular, please make sure there is no one in the porch before entering.

Please do not come to St Mary's if you feel unsafe, if you are suffering from COVID-19 symptoms, or think you may have come into contact with someone who has COVID-19.


The COVID-19 page contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life.

In an emergency you can contact the Rector, Revd Trevor Kirkman.

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength… Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these."
