Our guest preacher this Sunday is Andy Banks of Scripture Union New Zealand!

Andy writes, “My passion is encouraging a ‘faith lived out’ and part of my role with SUNZ is encouraging churches to mobilise their young people into urban mission on their own doorstep, using our YOUTHSERVE programme.

I began in ministry as a youth worker for two Liverpool churches for seven years and have spent the last 18 years on the staff of Scripture Union: six years with Scripture Union England & Wales and twelve years now with Scripture Union New Zealand.”

He’s also a Liverpool supporter, and it was going so well! We look forward to having him with us this Sunday

After church tea & coffee will be on Zoom from around 11:45am 
Come and join us virtually, it would be lovely to see each other again.

It's your move booklets

My Mary's for Private Prayer

St Mary’s is open for Private Individual Prayer this week during the times below. Please note that the days/times change each week in order to allow more people access. We have the correct measures in place that allow us to offer you a safe place to spend some time in private prayer. It has been fantastic to see people face to face over the past three weeks and to have a ‘distanced’ chat with them! Please do come in confidence if you would like to.

Public Worship
The PCC unanimously agreed not to reopen for Public Worship in July and are considering August in line with the current guidance from the Church of England & the Diocese. The guidance for the legal side of not reopening for Public Worship and the dispensation available is explained in this Guidance from the Church of England.

In the meantime, we will continue to offer Private Prayer sessions at St Mary’s and stream our services through July and August. I know not reopening in August (if that’s the decision of the PCC) will be disappointing for some people but we have to consider the safety of people entering a very restricted space. I will keep you informed on the decision of the PCC in due course.

With all God’s blessings, Revd Mike.

Who developed this resource?
The Ollertons have been making it during the Coronavirus lockdown. We’ve designed a session each evening and road-tested it with our three kids over breakfast (and revise… and repeat). Charlotte’s a qualified youth worker with oodles of creativity – see the paintings on the cards. Andrew is a more boring-theologian-type. He works with Bible Society and is author of The Bible Course a small group resource.

Many thanks to Howard Barker for sharing this great resource with us.

Faith at Home from the Church of England

This is a great resource for families to keep their children’s faith alive at this time.

The Bible Society
