We can’t gather at St Mary’s for our usual Sunday service, but we can all join a collective act of worship from our homes. You can do this at 9:30am or 11am on Sunday morning, or whenever else is convenient.
This is our service for Mothering Sunday, the fourth Sunday of Lent. Welcome to our Remote Church service!

Remote church is an experiment, an attempt to keep our community together while the Covid-19 virus disrupts our normal life. If you have suggestions on how to improve this, or would like to record part of next week’s service, please do let us know by commenting below or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
