O God, who as at this time taught the hearts of your faithful people by sending to them the light of your Holy Spirit:   grant us by the same Spirit  to have a right judgement in all things  and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort;  through the merits of Christ Jesus our Saviour,  who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,  one God, now and for ever.

Church Electoral Roll

A GDPR compliant 'names only' version of the Electoral Roll is available here



Since the lockdown started it has been  difficult for parishioners to maintain their giving through the collection plate although many parishioners  make their giving using Direct Debit or Standing Order. If you feel you would like to help St. Mary's financially please would you send an e-mail to uk.  We will contact you to discuss which method you woud prefer, from a one-off donation to regular giving.
