Cake Sunday

Come and join us for ‘Cake Sunday’ after today’s 10:30am service, when baked items will be for sale in St Mary’s Handbridge Centre in support of the School Pastoral Fund!


 Pet Service today at 3pm

Each October, St Mary's reflects on its steward of time, talents and the resources given in creation. We give thanks at Harvest but we also offer thanks for the companionship of animals. In place of our usual Messy Church today at 3pm, there will be a service to which we invite you to bring your pets (or a picture of them). The service will be followed by refreshments in the St Mary's Handbridge Centre.
