Sunday 27th December - Icon of the Day

‘God is in a vulnerable new born baby in a feeding trough. We need to see the mystery of incarnation in one ordinary, concrete moment, and struggle with, fight, resist and fall in love with it there. What is true in one particular place finally universalises and ends up being true everywhere.’

Richard Rohr

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, we pray for Adrian our Director of Music, our choir, our bellringers and all with whom we hope to be making music again very soon.


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!
