Our Mission Statement
This church is here to glorify God
and experience Jesus Christ in worship.
We seek to do this by being a welcoming and caring family
in which all members play their part.

Our desire is to find out more about the love of God
and to share that love.

St. Mary's is here to help people find God.
A Prayer for this Week

Christ our life,
You are alive in the beauty of the earth,
In the rhythm of the seasons,
In the mystery of time and space,
Alleluia.

Christ our life,
You are alive in the tenderness of touch,
In the heartbeat of intimacy,
In the insights of solitude,
Alleluia.

Christ our life,
You are alive in the creative possibility of the dullest conversation,
The dreariest task,
The most nerve-racking event,
Alleluia.

Christ our life,
You are alive to offer new creation
To every unhealed hurt,
To every deadened place,
To every damaged heart,
Alleluia.

You set before us a great choice.
Therefore we choose life.
The reality of resurrection soars and surges through the whole creation.
This is grace, 
Dying we live.
Therefore let us live.
Alleluia.


Church Heating
The church heating system is not working at the moment so it would be advisable to wear warm clothing on Sunday. The rooms in the Parish Centre are heated separately so these will be warm as normal for all the groups meeting this week.
