Friday 30th October - Icon of the Day

‘God is absolutely free and therefore if He creates it is because He wants to create. He wants to create in order to reveal and communicate His goodness and love to another. Because God loves, He wills that His creation should also be infused by love…Christ is the masterpiece of love in the midst of a creation designed for love.’

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, today we pray for all clergy.


Please donate if you can!

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, as those before us have done down the centuries, please consider making a donation by debit/credit card and to Gift Aid it if possible, by clicking this link to 'givealittle':

Thank you!
