Christian Aid Week

Christian Aid Week is over for 2022, but there is still time to donate towards St Mary’s target. Last year we raised £1,340 so this year we have set a goal of £1,500. Please give generously to this worthy cause.

Giving envelopes are available at the back of the church which you can return next week. You can also donate online through St Mary’s own Christian Aid e-Envelope at

Annual Parish Meetings

Today at 11.30 am
St Mary’s Church Whitkirk Community Centre

Our annual parish meetings will be held at 11.30 am, after this morning’s service. These are an opportunity for those in the parish to have their say in how their Church is run, and include a summary of the year, reports from key people and a chance to ask questions, as well as the election of roles such as deanery synod representatives and members of the PCC.

Faithbook: “Who is this man?”

Thursday 9 June at 7.30 pm

On Thursday nights in June we’ll be meeting and having a chat about what it means to be a Christian.

Each week begins with a short talk and then time for questions and discussion. We begin Faithbook this year with the question “who is this man?”
