Activities to Engage and Enrich
It is often said "If you find the perfect church don't join it, as you'll only spoil it". St Mary's isn't the perfect church, as it is made of individuals with capabilities, passions and needs which sometimes compliment each other and sometimes don't. However, we seek to lead an active life in the community and with each other, taking time for encouragement and growth together, both in serious study, and in frivolous fun. Both are necessary we find, to help each other in our walk with the Lord Jesus, and to be able to relate with each other.
So... on the serious side we've midweek bible study groups which meet to read God's Word and learn together in a home environment either weekly or fortnightly. We've a regular prayer and praise evening, women's fellowship group, mother and toddlers club and a regular men's breakfast.
And... on the fun side, we try to punctuate our calendar with events that will provide lighter moments and help create 'family' memories with a sense of belonging. We've a monthly walkers group, annual concert evenings, and an annual rounders match & picnic among our established regular church social events.
