Membership

As well as membership of the parish electoral roll, there are three other main ways in which membership is expressed at St Mary’s:

Prayer
The vitality and fruitfulness of a church depends on prayer
. Pick up our monthly prayer diary (here - members only) or from the welcome area at the Church or join with others in prayer through pastorates, Wednesday and Saturday morning prayer meetings and regular Central Prayer Meetings.

Service
We believe that every Christian is uniquely shaped and  gifted to serve. ‘The Servant Course’ helps our members find  the best place to serve. Contact the Church Office to find out more.

Giving
In the same way that we offer our prayer, talents and time in response to God’s goodness, membership should also be reflected in our generosity with money. St Mary’s doesn’t receive any funding from the Diocese, so we rely on the giving of our members to resource our mission and ministry. If you would like to a standing order for regular giving you can download the form here and also there is a gift aid form here if you are a UK tax payer.
