English Breakfast

Big Breakfast Club

The Big Breakfast will resume in September.
Dates will be published in due course.



Welcome to the St Mary's website. Please feel free to explore the various pages where we hope you will see that we are a diverse and lively community of people, seeking to serve God and the local community.


All are welcome at St Mary's - from newborns to those of 100 plus!  We like to think we have something for everybody and if we can help in any way, please feel free to get in touch. We hope to see you soon!


Jonathan and Theresa Lowe

Online Weekly Worship

Whilst Jonathan is on 3 months study leave, our online worship will be a little different. Rather than mirroring our normal Sunday worship in style and content, we are taking this opportunity to expand our learning. For the next 7 weeks, in conjunction with the Bible Society, the online worship will focus on giving us an overview of the whole Bible, enabling us to understand God’s big story from Genesis to Revelation. After that, we are joined by Revd Cris Rogers to consider what it means to follow Jesus in today’s world.
All church members are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to learn something a bit different – even if you attend Church in person on a Sunday!

Words of Encouragement

The Words of Encouragement video for 30th June was the last of these videos for a while. Jonathan is now on study leave for 3 months and during this period, he will focus on completing a Masters in Theology, working on his research project and dissertation. However, please don’t despair! To date, there are 444 of these videos, all of which you can access through the link below. So why don’t you, over the next 3 months, revisit some of the old ones, or perhaps discover old ones you’ve not listened to before.   Simply copy and paste the following link into your browser.

Dee Modric - The War on Europe

We recently had the privilege to hear Dee Modric talk about her work helping Ukrainian refugees in the Tatra Mountain region of Slovakia. As a Church Family, we will be partnering with Dee's Charity - "The War on Europe" - to support the work. If you wish to find out more, you can join the Facebook Group, click here.

You can also give financially to this relief effort at the following GoFundMe page:-

Dee will update us on how the work is going and highlighting any areas of particular need. 

We will continue to pray for Dee and this outreach to those in such great need.
