Daniel Hanson’s Funeral

We were saddened to hear of the loss of Daniel Hanson earlier this month. Daniel was a much loved and deeply valued member of our church family. It goes without saying that he will be missed. We are privileged to host his funeral and to accompany his family in their bereavement.

Daniels funeral will be held at St Mary’s on Thursday 18 April (Maundy Thursday) at 2:30pm.

Light Night Report

St Mary’s was full to overflowing on Light Night, Friday February 8th.  4,700 people viewed the art exhibits, listened to the Choir and lit Candles of Hope.   £2,500 was raised to support the work of the Emmanuel House Day Centre for homeless people.

Patronal Festival – Sunday February 3rd

On Sunday February 3rd we’ll be celebrating our Patronal Festival with two fine choral services. Matins [10.45am] will feature the Te Deum and Jubilate settings by Stanford along with the anthem Senex Puerum Portabat (The old man carried the child….) by Byrd.  The mass setting for Solemn Eucharist [6.30pm] will be by Alessandro Taddei da Gandria and this will be accompanied in style by The English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble.  Everyone is welcome.
