Ok, so things are going to be very different this weekend and our love and prayers are with you all at the time and our prayers and thanks are with all the KEY workers identified today ??????. 

Live Streaming Worship will continue at St Mary’s this Sunday for Mothering Sunday, so grab a cuppa, download the service order from our Website, it will also be published on here as well, sit down (or stand up) join us (virtually) as we worship God together. The church is the people, not the building (as nice as it is), so let us worship him whereever we are and pray for the needs of the world. You’ll see us from 10:30am! Shame we can’t see you!

Of course, you can watch it again on our Facebook Page anytime.

You can view the latest information form the Church of England and the effect on it’s services here
