God, who in generous mercy sent the Holy Spirit
upon your Church in the burning fire of your love:
grant that your people may be fervent in the fellowship of the gospel that, always abiding in you, they may be found steadfast in faith and active in service; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

GIVING AND DONATIONS
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 email@example.com. uk. We will contact you to discuss which method you woud prefer, from a one-off donation to regular giving.
For the first time in over 150 years we will not be printing a hard copy of our church magazine for distribution to our parishioners. We will however continue to compile it and publish it online. You can view our latest edition from the top of this page.
