Worship

This is the normal pattern of worship at St Mary’s throughout the year. From time to time, and especally during Lent, Holy Week & Easter, this may be added to or varied. The particular times of worship for each week are displayed on the home page of this site.

If you’re coming for the first time you may find the information on our Accessibility page helpful. It contains information about how long our services are, how they work and also how you can access facilities like toilets and baby change.

Our daily worship is hung on the hinges of Morning and Evening Prayer, and the Daily Mass, which usually lasts no more than half an hour. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament before the Saturday morning Mass provides an opportunity for silent prayer and adoration of the real presence of Christ with us in the Blessed Sacrament. The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession and Absolution) is available on Saturdays at 5:15pm or by appointment – you can use the contact us page to arrange this.
