Welcome to our website.
While you are here you will discover a little of what St Mary’s Church is like and what’s going on. We hope that you will find something to interest you here.
Our church is much more than a lovely and historic building, it is a living community with an active worshipping life. We reflect the comprehensiveness of the Church of England, and keep a gospel focus to our life. St Mary’s is an active member of Churches Together around Hampton.
Seeking God's Face
Advent Bible Reading
I recommend this book : Seeking God's Face by Philip F Reinders as a guide for daily Bible reading and prayer. The publishers provide a sample of the readings for Advent which you can download from here. I find the book helpful because the readings reflect the year and are 'hand-picked' to be a good launch pad for reflection and prayer. There are also suggestions for intercessory prayer.
The readings themselves you can find here.
I am a running a more general session about reading the Bible to hear God's word for us on Thursday 5 December at 20.00 in the Hansford Room. Everyone is welcome.
