Church Services on Sunday at 9.30 am and Tuesday at 12 noon

‘God is our hope and strength, a very present help in trouble’

(Psalm 46)


We are delighted that St Mary’s has been able to open since the summer, with a short Service of Holy Communion each Sunday at 9.30 am and on Tuesdays at 12 noon. Social distancing and hygiene measures have been put in place following C of E guidelines.

Those who are at extra risk and “clinically extremely vulnerable” are advised of the risk of attending public worship, a decision to do so is theirs alone.

For those unable to attend, our Sunday 9:30am services, we are now live streaming these on YouTube at We’ll start the live stream at around 9.15am to give you time to get everything setup. You’ll also be able to find all our previously live streamed services here. Look out for further details on our public Facebook page on Sunday mornings. Small numbers will be welcomed into the Church at each time so entry will controlled by our Stewards, who will be able to direct you.

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.

Vicar of St Mary’s, Hitchin & Team Rector of Hitchin with St Paul’s Walden and Preston
