We are planning a service of confirmation for our Team Ministry early next year. If you are interested in being confirmed— finding out what it means, or what is involved —please do contact our Rector, David Rice, at tel 01491 202188 or email: You are welcome to attend an initial meeting on Thursday  20th September at 7pm. It will be a no obligations opportunity to learn more about confirmation and decide when the preparation meetings will take place. To take part you do not have to have been baptised. There is a minimum age of 10 but no upper age limit!

A new look For toddlers


This year we opened up the toddler group for five weeks during the summer break. The attendance was really good, and the sessions very much appreciated.  We start back on 12th September with a new vision and under a new name of ‘Tiny Toes at St Mary’s’.  Our hope and prayers are that toddlers can continue to grow and thrive, and during that time we can help be a link to the church, as well as provide opportunities for the parents, carers, grandparents etc. to discover more of the Christian Faith.

Maren & Rhonda are looking forward to heading up the group this year but as always, they are looking to grow the team.  If you feel this is something you could contribute to or would like to find out more, please contact/speak to them.

Jesus and me (children’s church)


Starting on the 16thof September, we will be continuing our JAM sessions for children aged 2 to 8 during our morning services on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of each month. Together we will be exploring Bible stories and the Christian faith through games, drama, songs, crafts and much more. Feel free to join us.
