A WARM WELCOME TO St MARY’S CHURCH, HITCHIN

Our regular Sunday Communion Services are at 8 am and 10 am in Church. Midweek communion takes place at 11am on Wednesdays and is usually followed by coffee and fellowship.

Evensong services are continuing and there is a new Early Evening Service each month, as well as an inclusive, shorter 10 am service on the first Sunday of each month.

All are welcome at these services.

Further details of our services and events are found on our Facebook page @StMarysChurchHitchin

Hand sanitiser will still be available in church and to assist with ventilation, the outside doors will remain open throughout where weather allows.

The churchwardens recommend that face coverings are still worn during services where possible.

 

LIVESTREAMED Services on Sundays are available to watch live at 10 am or anytime afterwards on our Youtube channel available on this link: https://www.youtube.com/c/stmaryshitchin

St Mary’s Church Opening Times

Except when special services occur, we are open for all visitors with Welcomers in attendance on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from 11 am to 3 pm and on Sunday after our 10 am Service from approximately 11 am until 1 pm.
 
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

Eastertide joy and Platinum plans

Easter is over but its not over! Christians are “Easter People” and “Alleluia” is our song! With great joy we celebrate Christ’s resurrection from the dead and the new life and new hope and new vision that glorious event brings to the world and how we see the world. The life and teaching, and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ put together, are a lesson on the efficacy of humility, service, self-sacrifice and true love, by which one is prepared to die not only for one’s friends but also for the higher values of truth and justice, values which are needed more than ever in our world at the present time.

So we will keep celebrating Easter during this season of Eastertide until Pentecost on the 5th June. Pentecost is the birthday of the Church, the festival in which we celebrate the sending of God’s Holy Spirit upon the Church. But we will also be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on that weekend with the whole nation. You are very welcome to join us for a Civic Service in Thanksgiving for the Platinum Jubilee of HM The Queen at 11am on Sunday 5th June and of course, at all our services and events.

Happy Easter!

Chris
Vicar, St Mary’s
