We regret to say that, in the light of the Government announcement on 16 March, that there will be no public gatherings at St Mary’s Church. Therefore, Sunday services, Little Moles, Cafe, Alpha, CBS, along with children’s and youth events will be cancelled until further notice.
The St Mary’s Café is open on Wednesdays from 9am to 2pm and Thursdays and Fridays from 9am to 12pm. It is a welcoming and friendly place which serves the finest coffee and a range of excellent, inexpensive drinks, homemade cakes, pastries and snacks. The café is open to all across the generations and is a great place for people from the community to meet. The café also has a great soft play facility for 5’s and under and a range of other toys for young children.
In association with Princess Alice Hospice we hold a Bereavement Café on the second Thursday of every month. This is a chance to meet with others who understand the experience of loss. It is a space to talk about the pain of bereavement and find mutual support and encouragement when you need it most. Losing someone close can turn your life upside-down! Talking to someone who understands can really help!
2nd Thursday of every month 12.30pm – 2.00pm.
Princess Alice Hospice work with local communities to provide bereavement support beyond the Hospice itself and in addition to St Mary’s they have several other Bereavement Cafés in the local area. Find out more: www.pah.org.uk

Every Thursday morning, the wonderful Di Simms will be at St Mary’s Café to offer support and advice to the local community through her role as a NatWest Community Banker. She will be available to talk to people about how to protect themselves against fraud and scams, support with online and mobile banking, letting them know about alternative ways to bank where there is no longer a physical bank building in the area, and any general enquiries they may have about banking and finance. Spread the word about this amazing service!
