While social distancing guidelines are still in place, we are limiting the number of people who can attend a service at St Mary's. Our next service is on Sunday 16 August - Holy Eucharist with music at 10am. Book for this service by clicking the appropriate link below:

10am Eucharist

Face coverings are now compulsory – please bring your own to wear approaching and leaving the church, and at all times inside the building.

To avoid unnecessary movement around the church and further handling of face coverings, at our Eucharist services the Host will be brought to you in the pews. We hope this will also instil a more reflective atmosphere during communion without logistical concerns.  

Please also note the following important information:

  • Online bookings are filled on a first-come, first-served basis - some of the total seats have been reserved for offline bookings.
  • Each household will require a separate booking (unless they have formed a social bubble).
  • You should book multiple places (2 or more) by household only, and we will assume that the number in your booking can safely sit together.  
  • Once you have booked your place(s):
    • You will receive two emails from us to a) confirm your registration and b) a ticket for the service you have booked into. Please bring this with you.
    • The confirmation email will give you full details of the arrangements that will be in place in and around the church. Please read these carefully before you come to church.
    • If you do not receive these emails, please check your junk/spam folder.
  • If you have any problems booking online, please contact Sally Bisson during weekday office hours (9am - 12 noon Monday to Friday, except Wednesday) by phone on 07516 920253, or by email at, who will book a place for you if one is available.
  • We hope to be able to increase the number of services offered in church in the coming weeks, in line with government guidance.  
  • We will continue to offer an alternative online video service on our website here.
