Unless there is a very sudden change in circumstances , we are delighted to be able to say that St Mary's will be restarting services on Easter Sunday.

We will be holding a l0am service every Sunday and on the third Sunday of the month when this is a Mattins service, we shall also be having an 8 am Holy Communion service (Please check the Calendar here for more detail). The regulations for social distancing, the wearing of face masks, hand sanitising, no singing will all still be in effect. We will also still only be able to receive the bread and not the wine at communion and the ‘one- way system’ for communion will continue to apply - up the centre aisle and back by the side aisles. We must also continue to minimise the use of microphones and movement and so sidesman duties and reading will continue to be carried out by the churchwardens. Regrettably, we will still be unable to meet for coffee after the service. But, it is another small, but very important, step towards ‘normality’!
