    CANDLEMASS 

    Sunday  31st January

    This morning we celebrated Candlemass in Family Eucharist. All children were very involved in the sermon and the older children read both the reading and the intercessions. We welcomed families preparing for baptism and shared in all age worship.

    CHRISTINGLE

    Thursday  14th January

    This morning St Mary's school came along for their Christingle service. Together with their teachers, assistants, parents grandparents, school govenors and church members this service celebrated and supported through songs, prayers and donations, the work of the Childrens Society.

    All children had their own Christingle which were lit during the service and then (candles blown out!) were proudly taken back to school before taking the Light of Jesus back to their homes.

    Although we are an Anglican Church our doors are open to everyone, regardless of religious persuasion and all are most welcome to attend our various services. 

    There is something of interest for everyone, and St. Mary’s has many families within it’s congregation with children and parents participating together. On Monday afternoons we have Baby Massage and Stay and Play. We have a Mothers Union branch, Womens fellowship, links with scouts guides and rainbows. Please take a look at our calendar for current events.

    We hold concerts, social breakfasts and other events in the Church under the banner of "Music at St Mary's" and we also have a modern Church Hall which is available for hire.

    St Mary's is a popular venue for Baptisms and also has weekly active links with the exciting learning community at St Mary's C of E Primary school.

    We are the closest church to Trafford General Hospital and patients and staff from the hospital regularly attend St. Mary’s.

    We have a Partnership Agreement with the Evangelical-Lutheran Parish of Harmala, in Tampere, Finland.

    St. Mary’s has good facilities for people with mobility and other additional needs with a disabled toilet, baby changing facilities and an induction loop system installed for those with hearing difficulties. Large print service sheets and hymn books are available upon request.
