Focus [at St Mary’s]

Focus [at St Mary’s]

Focus is our annual church holiday, where we join with people from other churches across the HTB Network for a week of worship, teaching and fellowship.  This year, due to COVID restrictions, we are excited to bring you Focus at St Mary’s on 23-25 July! With a mixture of brand new Focus content and activities at St Mary’s across the weekend..

Focus at St Mary’s this year will be a chance for us all, young and old, to spend quality time together. We will eat, worship and pray together as we support each other through this new season of growth in our church family.

All the details are set out below and we’d love to encourage you to come to all of the sessions as they are all bound to be wonderful and choosing would just be too hard!
