St. Mary's Church

Welcome to Our church

We are a village church with a congregation of all ages. Many visitors comment on the welcoming community feel they encounter here.

Our worship includes both traditional and modern music and approaches.

On the first Sunday there is a BCP [1662] Sung Morning Prayer with the choir  in the church at 9.30am.  St Mary's Freedom Cafe meets at Peston Primary School at 10.30am, this  starts with a breakfast of bacon rolls, it is informal and  all the family are welcome to come and join in discussions, try a craft activity explore Christian faith and questions of life or perhaps read the Sunday papers and chill out. 

Usually, second and fourth Sundays find the adults enjoying the quiet space of the main Church building in a service of Holy Communion with hymns and songs while the children enjoy their age-specific activities in the adjoining Church Room.

On the third Sunday of each month young and old worship together informally, with thought  provoking input for all ages. We start this meeting with simple refreshments.

We try to share God's love in practical ways too especially through serving within our own village. Why not get involved in one or more of our many activities?

Challenging Times

We've all heard that Sunday services and other mid-week gatherings are to stop until further notice - posing a new and exciting challenge for us as we seek to 'do differently' in being Church in Tas Valley during these uncertain times.

Despite the inconveniences and in some cases, very real difficulties that we may encounter, we can continue to look to God for wisdom, help and comfort.  This is our moment to shine.  Here is opportunity to deepen our prayer life, to reach out in practical ways to neighbours and friends.  To show support and strengthen community in our villages.  We can all pick up the phone or write a card offering words of encouragement.  Many of us can offer help in a variety of practical ways.

Meanwhile, keep safe and well - watch this space and elswhere for further updates and developments.

With love and prayers

Dawn
