Church services - a hybrid affair
We are currently open for Sunday worship at both churches, while maintaining St Mary's Online - our live streamed interactive online service. Congregation size is limited at both churches, and booking for St Luke's is required (via the Parish Office).
This Sunday there will be services at the following times:
25 April 2021
11.30am - Fourth Sunday Family Service @ St Mary's (bookings now closed)
11.30am - Communion @ St Luke's (book via Parish Office by 1pm Thursday)
Join us online
St Mary's Online is our weekly Sunday service, streaming live on YouTube and Facebook at 10am.
Our service is a mix of music, worship, teaching and prayer. Those watching live can interact with us using the comments and everyone is welcome. At 11am we gather on Zoom for a post service cuppa and some fellowship time.
We also stream a live half hour of prayer every weekday morning at 9am on our Facebook Page.

While we cautiously return to in-church worship, service times may differ week by week.
Services at St Mary's will at either 8.30am / 11.30am
Morning Worship at St Luke's is at 11.30am on first, second and third Sundays
and Communion on fourth Sundays at the same time.
