Welcome to our website and our church!

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

(Psalm 46)


We are delighted to announce that weekly public worship on Sundays will resume in St Mary’s from Sunday 5th July with a short service of Holy Communion at 9.30am following social-distancing 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.

Our usual worship video will continue for those who do not feel ready to return to Church, as will the usual Zoom coffee meeting at 11am. St Mary’s is open on Tuesdays between 2 pm to 4 pm, and on Saturdays from 10.30 am to 12.30 pm from this week. 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.

The Rev’d Chris Bunce, our Vicar can be contacted at: vicarstmaryshitchin@gmail.com

Each Sunday you will be able to find a video of recorded worship and music to bring St Mary’s into your homes, at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0JJ6EPrOIUybuFe3mJvFzg/videos

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.
