The Parish of
St Mary The Virgin
Matthew 18 v 5:
“Whoever welcomes a little child in my name welcomes me.”
Children form a valuable part of our congregation at St Mary’s, and often take part in the services and events. Because young people learn by following the example of people that they know and respect, we were very happy when Robert and Sara Goddard joined our church.
We have enjoyed worshipping at St Mary’s since Easter 2012, where the church community have made us very welcome. We have experienced a wide variety of activities from Alpha and Prophesy courses to joining in with the Bucknall Team at Connect gatherings.
The ministry of Revd Nigel and Revd Dave was the reason that we decided to worship at St. Mary’s. As Head Teacher at Kingsland C. E. Primary School I have close links with the clergy from the Bucknall Team on a weekly basis. Having regularly attended church, for a number of years in the past, we felt that we needed to be closer to God again, because of our personal circumstances.
We enjoy every minute of our fellowship with the community of St. Mary’s and are so glad that we have chosen to play an active role in the church. We have decided to support the church by joining the P.C.C. and working with the young people by helping out at Fusion. We are looking forward to continuing to be part of the future at St. Mary’s and the exciting plans that God has for this community.
