Tuesday 25th August – Icon of the Day

‘Enter eagerly into the treasure house that is within you, and you will see the things that are in Heaven – for there is but one single entry to them both. The ladder that leads to the Kingdom is hidden within your soul. Dive into yourself, into your soul, and there you will find the ladder by which to ascend.’

St Isaak of Syria

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, today we pray for the new Archbishop of York, all bishops and clergy, especially our own - Jeff and Piotr.


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!
