Upcoming Events

Read about our upcoming events at St Mary’s with Holy Apostles:

Church Office Move On Monday 19th March the Church Office will relocate to another office in Parish House. It is anticipated that the office will be out of action for just one day. The move, to the former Children/ Youth Worker office, will mean that the church office and the vicar’s office will be close together and we can work more efficiently. It may take a little longer to have the phone lines moved. In the meantime messages can be left on the office answer machine on 500541 and they will be picked up on a regular basis. Alternatively, you can contact the office on mobile number 07751743192. Emails will not be affected.

Friends of St Mary’s Church. The Spring Fair will take place on Saturday 24th March from 11.00 am till 2.00 pm at Parish House. There will be all sorts of stalls and refreshments available. Proceeds of the fair will all go to the church fabric fund. Donations of home baking, books, and anything suitable as tombola prizes would be most appreciated. Do please try to support this event as it is raising money to help keep our beautiful church in such good condition. For further information contact Christine Cox on 370382.

Small Groups. Home groups, and Tuesday Evening Worship, are places where we encourage each other in developing the life of Jesus in ourselves and in our church. We can explore how the Bible applies in our daily lives and ask questions in a way that isn’t possible within a Sunday service, as well as developing quality relationships with each other. It is really valuable for every church member to belong to such a group. If you would like to know more please call the church office (500541). Read more.
