St Mary’s and St John’s are the Church of England (Anglican) churches, serving our parishes and welcoming everyone to worship and activities. We are engaged in the life of our communities and are glad that our buildings are there for the benefit of all.
We are very glad to be able to open once again for said services of Holy Communion. on Sundays at 9 a.m. at St. John's and 10.30 a.m. at St. Mary's. The orders of service for these can be downloaded on this page.
Our two churches will also be open for private prayer, on Wednesdays from 12 noon until 4 p.m.
Our Online Benefice Sunday Services continue, as will our other online services, prayers and resources. Meanwhile our churchyards are places of peace and beauty and there are benches where you can sit and enjoy the sunshine, flowers and nature all around – please feel free to wander in.
During the week, daily prayers and resources are on the website.
Morning and Evening Prayer is said daily in our homes at 9am and 5pm, and simple forms of these Offices are here on the website, as well as on the Church of England website:
If you’d like to know more about our worship and weekly events, or if you are enquiring about a wedding, baptism, or funeral, if you are new to this area, or would like to find out more, please get in touch. We welcome all in Christ's name.

Prayer for Today
Saturday 26th September
Feast of Lancelot Andrewes, Bishop of Winchester
Perfect in us, Almighty God, whatever is lacking in your gifts: of faith, to increase it, of hope, to establish it; of love, to kindle it; that like your servant Lancelot Andrewes we may live in the life of your grace and glory; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the same Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Order of Service
Please use a downloaded version or print off your own to take along to church. A few printed copies are available in case of need.
A Christening, or Baptism, is the first step of an amazing journey with God, parents, godparents, friends, family and the Church. A lifetime of discovering more about love, faith, and hope begins - a wonderful moment to celebrate.
Marrying in church is personal, meaningful, spiritual and beautiful, just as you want it to be.
When a loved one dies, please contact the Rev. Michelle so that prayers may be said as part of our daily worship.
