Our Sunday service this week will be a 9.30am Eucharist service led by Father Simon Vivian; all are welcome to attend, we look forward to welcoming Father Simon to Great St Mary's for his first service.   

Father Simon Vivian's Induction

Thank you to everyone who was involved in the preparation for the service, Bishop Michael commented how beautiful and sparkling the church looked,

Bishop Michael recognised the effort that had gone in to ensuring a successful service that was safe and covid secure,  it was also wonderful to have the Choir singing once again with us,

Streaming of Services

We are planning on live streaming our 09.30 Sunday Eucharist service, and will be available to watch via this website.

Thank you to all those who watched the Induction service, we have had 207 people view the video so far. Those who were watching would have noticed a few sound issues, we are working hard to resolve these issues and hope to have them fixed by Sunday, please do bear with us whilst we work on this and we will continue to stream the service even with these minor issues.
