Welcome to St Mary’s. We are a friendly and lively church for all ages, getting to know Jesus better through his Word (the Bible) and his Spirit, together on a Sunday and throughout the week.
Until recently, since the start of the coronavirus crisis, St Mary’s church building has been closed and we have not been able to offer our usual services.
We have however been preparing materials for people to worship God at home. These continue to follow our intended service pattern, details of which can be found here. Whilst the church has now been reopened for services (using a booking system), we are continuing to provide materials for folk to worship God at home.
This week we heard the sixth sermon in the 'Big Family of God' series, entitled 'Forgive one another', here.
Last week we heard the fifth in the series - Honour one another, here.
We also heard a sermon by Bishop Jo on the Labourers in the Vineyard parable, here.
Previously we heard the fourth in our Big Family of God series: 'Offer one another welcome and hospitality', here.
Earlier, we celebrated Harvest. Sermon and bible readings are here.
Earlier in the 'Big Family of God' series:
3: 'Worship with one another'.
2: 'Be generous to one another'.
1: 'Encourage one another'.
Earlier, we had the eighth and last in our sermon series on the Book of James, on 'Prayer'.
Previously we heard:
Part 7: 'Planning'.
Part 6: 'Wisdom'.
Part 5: 'Taming the Tongue'
Part 4: 'Faith and Deeds'
Part 3: 'Favouritism Forbidden'
Part 2: 'Listeners and Doers'
Introduction and Part 1: 'Trials and Temptations'
We will continue to upload sermons, week by week in our ‘Talks at Services’ section on this site.
