Prayer Groups

  • There is a Time of Silent Prayer at 10am on the first  Thursday of each month.  This takes place in the Parish Rooms and starts with a short reading and stilling exercise, followed by 20 minutes of silence and concluding with the Lord’s Prayer.  See the Calendar for more information.
  • The Julian Group. This meets on every second Tuesday of the month for a short reading, half an hour’s silent meditation / contemplation followed by discussion.
  • Services of Corporate Prayer.  Morning Prayer is held in the North Chapel on weekday and Saturday mornings; and Evening Prayer is held weekly on Tuesdays at 5pm in the North Chapel.  See the Calendar for more details.
  • The Parish Prayer meeting takes place on the first Saturday of each month at 9am in the Parish Rooms and lasts for 30 minutes.
  • There are a number of prayer ‘triplets’ – groups of three people who meet together for prayer at their own convenience to pray in whichever way is most helpful to them.
Contact us to find out more about any of these groups and events.

Study Groups

There are several small groups at St Mary’s that meet to study the Bible and to pray together through the year.  We also hold regular courses for Lent and Advent .  More information will be shown on our Courses and Events page and will be posted on our Calendar or Latest News page.

Living Questions course

Each year the Rector runs this  course in the Rectory, one evening a week for 7 weeks,  to explore the questions you might have about the Christian faith?  If you are interested, then please contact David Tomlinson  - 01799 500 947 or
