Temporarily closing the church building

Due to concerns about the spread of Coronavirus, and in consultation with the Bishops of Sheffield and Doncaster, all regular worship services and other gatherings at Saint Mary’s church building have been suspended until further notice. We are keeping this decision under review.

After much discussion, we are also suspending opening the church building for personal prayer. We are also keeping this decision under review. Funerals can still take place in the church building by arrangement (and following government and Church of England guidance to minimise the risk of spreading infection).

If you would like someone to pray with you, if you would like some practical help at this time, or if you would just like to speak to someone from Saint Mary’s church, please contact us using any of the methods on the ‘Contact Us’ page of this website.  Please also contact us if you would like to join in with any of our online Zoom gatherings.

Our Stewards will be happy to help you, please follow their directions.

We will ask you to sanitise your hands on arrival and exit.

There is a one-way system in place, please follow the directional arrows.

If it becomes busy, we may ask you to wait outside the church until there is space available, which will be sanitised before your use.
