Dear Friend of St. Mary’s,
Please read my message about our St. Mary's 2020 Christmas Appeal by clicking here
Following this week's Government announcement advising of the lifting of national lockdown with effect from 2nd December, we plan to resume our pre-lockdown Sunday said Eucharist services at St. Mary's services staring on Sunday 6th December. Church opening times for Private prayer will similarly revert to 11am - 2pm on Sundays.
For further details of the new arrangements please go to the weekly leaflet for the First Sunday of Advent below.
Post, emails and telephone calls to the Parish office will continue to be monitored and responded to.
or Tel. 01932 866005
The weekly Parish leaflet will continue and be sent out on regular email distribution to those on the electoral role and others who have specifically requested it. Similarly, the St Mary’s website will be updated to advise of any changes from the current situation.
The St Mary’s Chat WhatsApp Group, which was established during the first lockdown, will continue to allow people to share their prayers and thoughts. I will continue to post my personal messages, including my Sunday message.
For those unable to access WhatsApp, my video messages are also available on this Website Home page and my Sunday messages also appear under Sermons on the Quick Links on this page.
We will continue with our regular postings of my video clips on Twitter and Instagram, so do follow us on @StMarysstokedab
Notwithstanding these initiatives, please be reminded that I am always available if you would welcome a personal communication.
Stay safe and with my best wishes to all
The Reverend R Godfrey Hilliard MA
