Friday 26th February - Icon of the Day

‘My Dearest Lord

Be Thou a bright flame before me

Be Thou a guiding star behind me

Be Thou a smooth path beneath me

Be Thou a kindly shepherd behind me

Today and evermore’

Attributed to St Columba

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, we pray for all those we find it hard to pray for, that they and we may be touched by God’s love.


In these unprecedented times, St Mary’s is reaching out and supporting our community in many ways, especially online. But with activities in our buildings greatly restricted, we no longer receive the previous level of financial support from collections at Services, nor from hiring out the church and hall buildings.

If you can help us financially to continue to offer Christ's love to our community in these difficult times, please consider making a donation by debit/credit card and to Gift Aid it if possible, by clicking this link to 'givealittle':

Thank you!
