What are we like?

St Mary is a lively, multi-cultural and community-based church. Our congregation is largely from the local community and we seek to worship the trinitarian God and serve those we live amongst. As a worship community, we hold to the following values:

 

Confident 

in speaking and living of the love of Christ Jesus.

 

Compassionate

in serving our community and places of work with the love of God the Father.

 

Creative

in reaching new people and places with the Good News in the power of the Spirit.

Sunday morning service

Our 10:15am Sunday service is live from the building and streamed via YouTube and Facebook. We have started to gather on a new church hub called church online. You will see a tab for this at the top of our web page. You can gather for our church service using this tab.

 

Our services are lively and informal, with a loosely evangelical feel. We follow simple and modern liturgy from the Church of England and mix modern songs with traditional hymns. All are welcome. We have Communion twice a month.

 

Church at Five

We are not currently running our youth and children's provision at 5pm in the building, but hope to do this soon. This is a much more informal worship service designed for children and young people. We use action songs, creative activities, prayer spaces and other interactive worship ideas designed to meet all ages and learning styles. Children under 7 must be accompanied by an adult.

Formal statement adopted by the PCC

Every person has a value and dignity which comes directly from the creation of male and female in God’s own image and likeness. Christians see this potential as fulfilled by God’s re-creation of us in Christ. This implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm. 

 

* We accept and endorse the principles set out in ‘Safeguarding in the Diocese of London’.

* We commit ourselves to nurture, protect and safeguard all our members, particularly children, young people and vulnerable adults.

* We recognise that safeguarding is the responsibility of the whole church community.

* We undertake to exercise proper care in the selection, appointment, training and support of those working in both paid and voluntary positions with children or vulnerable adults, including the use of Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) disclosures and making appropriate referrals to the Disclosure and Barring Service.

* We will respond without delay to concerns or allegations that a child or vulnerable adult may have been harmed, cooperating with the police and social care services in any investigation.

* We will challenge any abuse of power by anyone in a position of trust.

* We will seek to offer pastoral care and support to anyone who has suffered abuse, developing with them appropriate pastoral support.

* We will seek to offer pastoral care and support, including supervision and referral to the proper authorities, to any member of our church community known to have offended against a child, young person or vulnerable adult.  

 

The PCC of this Church agreed and adopted the above Policy at its meeting on 15/07/2019.

Volunteer with us

Here at St Mary we have a long established relationship with the Hive Foodbank, giving out food to those most vulnerable in our community. During the pandemic we have also established a Friday Night Takeaway meal for those in need in our community. We have seen a big increase in need and therefore an increase in the work involved. Here are some of the ways you could help us. Volunteers are the backbone of all our work, and we are grateful to anyone who is able to give time to help out. Have a look at the job roles below to see where you could serve your local community. 
Food stackers 
Mondays to Fridays for one to three hours
We get a lot of deliveries each week for the Hive food bank. Stacking the shelves, keeping things clean and moving around food is weekly work that can always benefit from a helping hand. 
Drivers
Weekday evenings
If you have a car and time in your day, drivers are always welcome. We are regularly donated food from charities and companies who partner with us. Drivers are needed to collect the food and deliver it to the church on an ad hoc basis.  
Cooks
Fridays or Tuesdays from 11am-2.30pm
Lead cooks and helpers are needed to prepare our Friday Night Takeaway and make up ready meals for the Hive Foodbank on Tuesdays. Experience is helpful, but novices are welcome.
