Saturday 24th October - Icon of the Day

‘We cannot allow God to come down to us, which is the meaning of the Incarnation; we think we’ve got to go up to God. We’re usually going up the down escalator! And we miss Jesus on the way, as He de-escalates into our so very ordinary world’

Richard Rohr

The ten scrims (a semi-transparent theatrical voile), suspended from a track in the ceiling, show a vertical lift from Wayne McGregor's 2018 ballet 'Yugen', performed by Royal Ballet dancers Calvin Richardson and Joseph Sissens.

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


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 Services in church cancelled, we no longer receive income from collections, 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!


If you would like to contribute to these reflections, please do email Katherine Cox at
