Something for the New Year

New Year is a time when we think about making changes to our lifestyle.  If this is you, and you think you would like to get involved or more involved in St Mary’s, please have a word with the wardens or Rev Chris. 

One thing you may wish to consider is joining a House Group.  There are a number of groups which meet regularly. If you would like to join one of these then please speak to one of the leaders.  Joining one of the House Groups enhances fellowship and gives a deeper understanding of God’s Word in a non-threatening environment. 

Why not give it a go?
