Refreshments are available after each service. A light pizza supper

is available after the 4.30pm Saturday service and all are welcome to join us

and enjoy the friendship and fellowship offered.

These services,designed with families in mind, are short, but if you are worried that

your child might wander or talk during the sermon, please don’t,. No-one

will mind at all. Jesus welcomed little children and so does St. Mary’s.

Alternatively, if you would like to worship in church without your children

we also offer a Junior Church facility, which is available on the fourth

and fifth Sunday from 9.30am. Children are supervised by two Junior Church

leaders in the Barn which can be accessed via the church car park.  

Children are taught Bible stories and make craft items to reinforce the message

in an enjoyable way. The sessions are friendly and informative

and all are welcome. If parents are unsure about leaving their child

they are welcome to stay.
