In-Church Services

Open

Update

Canon Toby Wright, Team Rector writes: "Today is an exciting bulletin to write to you all to let you know that as a Benefice we are opening up our churches from . I hope that you will feel able to come back and join in the life of praise and community which is so precious in each of our churches. It is an exciting time to do this as we are in the Ordinary Time season – the season of growth and development.

Online Services

Here is a link to details of online Benefice Services 

Daily Office

Praying the Daily Office has re-started at 0900 and 1730 at St Mary's every Monday to Saturday.

One of the gifts of the Daily Office is that it unites the Church in time (tradition) and space (the contemporary worldwide Church) and reminds us that our prayer is part of something much bigger than ourselves. The same prayer is offered by countless Anglicans - and others - across the world as we pray the same psalms together - though apart - and are fed by the same passages of scripture.

General Church Opening Times

Our churches are now open during the day for prayer and reflection
