Tuesday 8th September – Icon of the Day

Description of the Northumbrian monastic community: ‘Dynamic and erratic, spontaneous and radical, audacious and immature, committed if not altogether coherent. Ecumenically open and often experimental, visible here and there , now and then, but unsettled institutionally. Almost monastic in nature but most of all enacting a fearful hope for society.’

William Stringfellow

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


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!
