SERVICES IN CHURCH
St Mary's Church is now open again for services at 10.00am every Sunday. As the Covid rules have now been relaxed, you do not now need to book to attend our church. You will still need to social distance in church and sanitize your hands on entry and fill in track and trace details. You are also welcome to wear your mask and you will need to do so to sing hymns and when queuing to receive Holy Communion.
