Volunteers please

We hope to restart our Readers Rota soon.  This will let us plan ahead and readers will be able to have the passage in advance.  If you would be willing to read in church please let Fr Scott know.
Rotas for sidespeople will be produced: if you are a sidesperson at any church, please volunteer to Derek White-Taylor at St Mary’s.
We are also re-introducing some altar serving with a selected and specially trained cadre of servers.
Please do not wait to be asked.

Finance
Giving envelopes are now available and if anyone wishes to support the church on a regular basis please speak to Jean Smith.
 

Your responsibility
Although we take every precaution in our worship to prevent the spread of covid-19 the fundamental responsibility is that of everybody present.  Do not attend if you have any symptoms which may be covid, or if you have been in contact with any person so diagnosed.
 

History of St Mary’s Church

The building stating today was designed by John Oldrid Scott; building started in 1874, and was completed in 1913 with the addition of the tower and spire.

The church houses some unique stained glass. The completely abstract west window – one of the first of its kind – was created by Alfred Wolmark in 1915.
