Giving to St Mary’s – Have you ever considered giving to St Mary’s by Standing Order? This helps to plan our finances more accurately as we know what income to expect each month. It also means you can still give even if you are away from church for any reason. There are standing order forms at the back of church. Thank you for your support. If you are a UK taxpayer St Mary’s Church can claim back 25p for every £1.00 you donate to church. Please consider signing up to our envelope scheme if you are a tax payer and fill in a Gift Aid form at the back of church. Thank you. Home Visits – If you would like to request a home visit or Holy Communion at home, please contact Stewart Barnet, Authorised Lay Minister, Telephone 07950 354445.
School Admissions for 2020/21- If you require church attendance verification for a school admission please make sure you register after every service. St Mary’s School Admissions Policy can be found on the school website and here.
“During the current lockdown, churches are permitted to remain open. St Mary’s church will therefore continue to offer public worship at 8:00am and 10:30am each Sunday morning. All are welcome to attend subject to booking in with Susie Mapledoram – email@example.com. So far, there has been no change in the guidance regarding recording church attendance for school admission purposes. The existing procedures as stated on both the school and the church websites therefore remain in place. Should these circumstances change, we will advise you as soon as possible”.
Flowers – If you would like to sponsor altar flowers at a cost of £20 please sign the list at the back of the church, or speak to Julia Dutton.
Prayer Tree – Please feel encouraged to use the prayer tree in the Wilton Chapel near the war memorial. Each month the prayers are removed to be prayed over silently at the altar at one of our services.
