At St Mary’s we seek to focus our ministry on the building of community. To that end we place a strong emphasis on pastoral ministry including ministry to children and families.
For this purpose there are a number of different services, at different time throughout the week, each allowing both children and families to particpate and belong in the fellowship of the parish.
See THIS WEEK for currently scheduled services.
Or SERVICES for further information.
SUNDAY EUCHARIST (Sundays at 9am)
Currently there is no Sunday school, but activity bags can be found at the back of the church and for the older kids there is an interactive puzzle sheet, relevant to the service.
CHILDREN AND FAMILY'S SERVICE
The evening is set aside for a special service for children and families. We try to make these days unique and memorable for everyone, but especially for the children.
As these services become established in the life of the parish, they will feature a variety of activities, styles and opportunities for us to celebrate God’s love for us, and his blessing upon our fun and laughter together.
At the end of the service, those who wish can gather in the parish hall for a bring-and-share finger tea, and a time of fellowship together.
TOTS' CHURCH (Wednesdays at 10am)
This is a special service to cater for the needs of parents with young children who find it difficult to attend our Sunday worship and is held each Wednesday morning at 10am.
We believe that Jesus meets us where we are, and we ask him to meet with us as we sit informally in the Chapel with our little ones.
We enjoy a service which recognises the special needs and concerns of parents and young children. The service, which is quite short and creative, is followed by morning tea and a time of fellowship together.
We would love you to come and join us.
