Memorial Service 2017

This will take place in St Mary’s on Sunday 14 May at 3pm. Invitations will be sent to the next of kin of all those for whom we have conducted a funeral. But everyone is welcome to attend this moving and uplifting service.



At St. Mary’s we are always delighted to undertake child and adult baptisms. Baptism services are usually celebrated once a month at an individual service commencing at 11.45am. If you wish to discuss Baptisms further then please contact Rev’d Paul White.


You are welcome to marry in the Church of England  and we at St. Mary’s welcome couples to marry at this beautiful Church which has been the centre of worship for over the past 1000 years.

Please contact Rev’d Paul White for more information or download the Wedding brochure.

Sadly as we meet with the end of life we become faced with the responsibility of arranging a funeral for a loved one. You do not have to face this alone, the clergy at St. Mary’s can meet with you to arrange the funeral for your nearest and dearest.  If you wish to meet with Rev’d Paul White please contact the church office on 01732 850238.
