This new style 10.00am Sunday service will be accessible for everyone including younger families. A chance for the whole congregation to worship together and we would love you to join us, so save the dates!
This service will normally be on the first Sunday of the month; please note it will not be livestreamed.
Hand sanitiser will still be available in church and to assist with ventilation, the outside doors will remain open throughout where weather allows.

ST MARY’S AUTUMN OPENING TIMES
As well as our regular services, St Mary’s will also usually be open to visitors at the following times from 1st August until further notice:
Sundays, 11.00am to 1.00pm
Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays: 11.00am to 3.00pm.
Please note: There may be no entry at these times where this coincides with weddings or funerals, maintenance, or any unforeseen events. If so, this will be indicated by signs outside the main doors. Do check with the Parish Office well ahead if you are making a special journey.
As stated churchwardens recommend that face coverings are still worn when visiting the church, where possible
We are looking forward to the Autumn at St Marys, especially as we launch our new monthly service, One Bread, One Body in October which we hope will be a way to bring the whole Church family together in a child-friendly way. Then we will head into November, which is very much a month for remembering: We remember those who gave their lives in times of war, the Church remembers the saints (at All Saints) and we all remember our loved ones lost at All Souls. The crowning of the Church year is the festival of Christ the King before the season of Advent leads us towards Christmas joy. We pray that there will be more joy this Christmas than last and look forward to welcoming Hitchin people into their beautiful church!
All good wishes,
The Rev’d Christopher Bunce
Vicar of St Mary’s, Hitchin & Team Rector of Hitchin with St Paul’s Walden and Preston
