ADVENT, CHRISTMAS AND EPIPHANY SERVICES
At St Mary's we welcome you to join in our services celebrating this joyful season!
Preparations for Christmas begin in Advent, and our celebration of Christmas goes on through the twelve days of Christmas to Epiphany and Candlemas.
We take a special collection at our services on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in aid of charity. This year we are collecting for Crisis. Please give generously to help someone less fortunate than you. If you are a tax payer please use one of the Crisis Gift Aid envelopes you will find in the pews as this will increase your donation by 25% at no extra cost to you. By completing the details the envelope Crisis will be able to reclaim the tax . This year £28.18 will provide a place for one person and help them on their way out of homelessness.
