A large number of people give their time to organise and run the many different groups or ministries that enrich St Mary’s. These are listed below, with links to further information in most cases.
If you feel you could help to support the life of the church through one of these groups or ministries, or would simply like to find out more about them, please contact the parish office by phone: 01509 262123, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. It may only take an hour of your time once a week, once a month or once a year if we all take part.
