Monday 18th January - Icon of the Day

Set Out!

You were born for the road.

You have a meeting to keep.

Where? With whom?

Perhaps with yourself.

Set out!

Alone or with others –

But get out of yourself.

You have created rivals;

You will find companions.

You envisaged enemies;

You will find brothers and sisters.

Set out!

Your head does not know

Where your feet

Are leading your heart.

Set out!

You were born for the road –

The pilgrim’s road.

Someone is coming to meet you,

Is seeking you

In the shrine at the end of the road,

In the shrine in the depths of your heart.


God already walks with you

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, we pray for the Food Banks and those who they help.


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!
