Sundays

Every Sunday, St Mary’s Church family gathers together for worship that equips and motivates us for our walk with Jesus and daily life in our homes, in our neighbourhood and in our workplaces.  Our Sunday service is at 10.30am and the format of the service varies week by week and at special times of the year such as Lent, Easter, Harvest, Advent and Christmas. Any of our services may also include special events such as the thanksgiving for the birth of a child or a baptism.

Each week we warmly welcome visitors and newcomers to the church. If you are new to St. Mary’s or wonder what to expect then click here. It is also a privilege and a joy to welcome children to all our services - click here to find out more about our provision for children and their involvement.

Our Usual Pattern of Services:

1st Sunday of the Month - All Age Family Service 10.30am
A shorter and more informal service, which is geared to making worship accessible to the whole family, especially children and young people.

2nd and 4th Sundays of the Month - Holy Communion Service 10.30am
Children go out for their own engaging activities during part this service.
Visitors who take communion in their home church are more than welcome to take part in communion with us in that part of the service, alternatively we always offer an individual blessing prayer at the same time, so everyone is included.

3rd Sunday of the Month - Morning Praise 10.30am
A service of the Word, with prayers and hymns, and no communion.

5th Sunday of the Month … if there is one … 10.30am - we vary the format and may try something new!

3rd Wednesday of the Month - Holy Communion at 11.00am
Held at Elkin Court Retirement Home, Hardwick Road, Partington, Manchester M31 4DT
Anyone is welcome to join us as we share a short service of prayer and Holy Communion followed by fellowship in the café with residents of Elkin Court.

People have many reasons for wanting to come to church. Some have clear Christian beliefs, others are not really sure what they believe. Some are curious to know more about Jesus and his relevance to life today, others drifted away from church over the years and think that for whatever reason it might be time to come back home. Some are celebrating key moments in life such as the birth or baptism of a baby, or poignant times of grief after the loss of a loved one. Others just get dragged along by family or friends or are not even sure why they came at all!
Whatever the reason, you are most welcome!
