St Mary’s is open for private prayer every Friday and Saturday 10:00 – 12:00.

Daily Morning Prayer (Monday – Friday inclusive) is currently held on Zoom; if you wish to join, please contact rector@marylemore.co.uk for details.

We will be re-opening St Mary’s for public worship on Sunday 16 August. Church will feel quite different with social distancing requirements and, as there will be a limited number of places available, we are trialling a booking system. A total of 30 people can be accommodated. So, if you would like to attend church on 16, 23 or 30 August, please click here to go to the booking system. Both individual and family bookings, for those who wish to worship together, are possible. A different booking is needed for every Sunday you wish to attend. You should receive a confirmation email so, if this doesn’t arrive in your Inbox, please check your Junk mail.

We hope you will find it straightforward and we very much look forward to seeing you in church.

Live streaming of the service will continue for those who are not part of the physical congregation.

St Leonard’s will remain closed for the moment and all Services other than 10:00 on Sunday in St Mary’s are suspended.

If you would like Revd David Rice to say a prayer for you at his regular Morning Prayer, please email him: rector@marylemore.co.uk

A weekly Church at Home Holy Communion service is live-streamed and available on this link.

Please find below the Service Booklet for the coming Sunday and recent Sundays, which you may wish to use while watching an online service.

Sunday

Our mid-morning services are held at St Mary’s in the centre of the town and are followed by time for refreshments and a chat:

Parish Communion (10am), following Common Worship liturgy, which gives the children an opportunity to attend JAM during the service. For more information on JAM see our Children & youth activities.

Family Service (normally 2nd Sunday, 10.15am) is preceded by activities for children of all ages (9:45am) and followed by Holy Communion (11.15am).

All Age Communion (normally 4th Sunday, 10am), where children and young people often contribute to the service, for example through readings, musical contributions or prayers, follows Common Worship liturgy.

Parish & All Age Communion are led by the Wallingford Parish Church Choir.

Of special note at St Leonard’s is a Choral Evensong service, most months, and a Sung Evensong on other Sundays; both services start at 6.30pm.
