In addition to our services, we come together as a church family to pray every Saturday from 9.00am to 10am. We have a monthly prayer sheet which informs members of the Church family of specific prayer needs.
St. Mary’s offers baptism services for babies, children and adults. These take place at our main morning 10.45am service. Those who are thinking about having their children baptised should contact Rev Rachel Stavert who will be delighted to explain the process.
Congratulations! You’re welcome to marry in church whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are baptised and whether or not you go to church. And, marrying in church has never been easier thanks to a change in the law which means you now have more churches to choose from.
For such a special day, we offer a special place – St. Mary’s is a lovely and holy place for you to commit yourselves to each other. All you need to help you plan a personal, meaningful, spiritual and beautiful church wedding can be found here. It is also essential to contact Rev Rachel Stavert as early as possible to help you through the process.
