St Mary's is open again for Sunday Family Worship!
FAMILY PACKS ARE NOW AVAILABLE IN CHURCH FOR USE IN WORSHIP
With children's colouring sheets and washable ink colouring pens are available in the Rutherwyke room upon entry. Please keep to one pack per family (and please try and avoid sharing the contents with other family groups - there are resources in each pack for different aged children!) and return the folder and pens at the end of the service by placing them into the re-cycling bin provided by the exit blue doors. Thank you.
While St Mary's Church was closed we are produced a weekly pack of activities, crafts and much more. They are here for you to download and use at home.

From Sunday 5 July colouring & activity sheets will be sent out via St Mary's Church weekly mailer on the Friday preceding the Sunday and available to collect .
