Annual Parochial Church Meeting

The Annual Parochial Church Meeting is an opportunity for those in the parish to have their say in how their Church is run. It includes a summary of the year and reports from key people, as well as the election of roles such as churchwardens and members of the PCC.

This year’s meeting will be held online on Tuesday 25 May 2021 at 7.00 pm.

You can find more information about this year’s APCM on our website at, including the agenda and a copy of our annual report.

If you would like physical copies of documents and details of how to join by phone, please let us know.

Christian Aid Week

Tomorrow marks the beginning of Christian Aid Week. If you’d like to give to this worthy cause, helping to fight poverty and tackle the climate emergency, you can donate online through the St Mary’s Christian Aid e-Envelope at

If you are attending our worship in person and wish to donate, Christian Aid giving envelopes are available at the back of the church. Please take one and return it with your donation next week.

Last year the community at St Mary’s raised £724, so this year we have set a target of £750. Please help us to achieve this goal.

Worshipping in person

In line with the Government’s plan for easing lockdown, and based on our own risk assessments, we have now re-opened our doors for public worship. As in the past, you must still book to attend any of our services in person, and you must follow additional rules around cleaning your hands, covering your face, and maintaining distancing whilst in the church. If you want to attend a service you can either book online, or you can call us on 0113 450 8554.

We will continue streaming all our services, both during this period of limited availability and into the future. You can join us online every Sunday morning at 10.00 am, catch up any time through the week, listen to our services over the phone, or listen using our podcast.
