Home groups are a sociable and enjoyable way to explore your faith in detail, and form deep supportive links with your fellow Christians. If you would enjoy meeting for prayer, bible study and discussion at one of our home groups, or feel you could host one yourself, email the firstname.lastname@example.org.
From time to time St Mary’s, and other churches in the team, arrange pilgrimages. These have included day trips to important sites of spiritual significance in the UK such as Canterbury, to longer trips further afield such as the Holy Land. These trips are expertly led by members of the team clergy along with specialist guides. To find out about up and coming trips please check this page and watch out on our ‘news and events’ area.
Each year the Team offer a series of classes looking at different aspects of faith and Christianity in preparation for Easter. These may be held here at St Mary’s or at one of the other churches in the Team. To find out about the next series, keep an eye on the news and events section, our facebook page or email the office to ask to be notified when the announcement is made.
