Sunday Worship


Worshipping God – ‘welcoming all’.

 

Our noticeboard proclaims it, and it’s what we seek to do at St. Mary’s.


Our beautiful Grade I listed building proclaims in silent stone God’s constant presence. That presence has been experienced by generations of residents of our beautiful village, and the wider parish of Sprotbrough, and Cadeby. A presence there  in the joys and sorrows of life’s key moments, and there in the daily challenges of ordinary life. People attest to the tranquillity of the church and its grounds which allows them to feel held and secure, stepping aside from the noise and rush into a space more timeless and solid. It’s a space in which we hope you too will find both tranquillity and a warm welcome.


‘Welcoming all’


We believe that, in all our diversity, we are created in the family likeness of God. St. Mary’s seeks to create a safe space where each person can discover God’s presence in their daily lives and circumstances, and in one another. We celebrate our differences, and learn and grow best by exploring faith in God together. Because we are different, we learn in different ways; so, through a variety of services, groups and social events, we hope you will find something for you.

We believe that God is present and at work not only in the church, but in the world around it, in our community and those who live and work here. That’s why we seek to grow partnerships, working with others to bless the community we love, and which we believe God loves. We’d love you to share in this, partnering with us and discovering more of the God who loves you and believes in you.

God of all times and ages,
May your unfailing strength support us,
Your unfailing love surround us,
Your unfailing goodness overcome all that is evil.
Give patience, ingenuity and courage
to all who are seeking to develop the means
to keep us safe from the virus.
Help us to support those whose lives
and livelihoods have been damaged by it.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Diocesan Prayer

 Living God, Jesus calls his followers to seek  f irst your Kingdom.

 Renew us as we make your love known;

 Release us to share freely together in  mission;

 and Rejuvenate us to be fruitful in your  service.

 Give us courage, wisdom and compassion,

 that strengthened with the grace of the Holy  Spirit,

 we may, as the Diocese of Sheffield,

 both flourish and grow through Christ our Lord.

 Amen.

Funerals

We seek to support with sensitivity and care those grieving the loss of a loved one. In saying goodbye, we celebrate their life in its uniqueness, trusting in a God of new beginnings.


Weddings

Though these happen in many venues, a church marriage is different . This is not a venue, it is a place of worship in which a couple can seek God’s blessing on their new life together. The vows are traditional and timeless, but the service will be as unique as the couple!

Christenings (Baptism)

Thanksgiving

Congratulations!!  The birth of a baby is a momentous and wonderful event.  It's no surprise that those who experience it often feel the need to mark the arrival of a new life in the church.




Sunday t-Time is a time when families, especially those with young children, can meet together for worship in an informal way.

Journey into Faith/Confirmation


A special service where those baptised in childhood can take ownership of the promises made for them then. Confirmation is an opportunity to make a public declaration of faith. For those who have not been  christened, this can happen at the same time.


Church Hall

Based at the heart of the community, available for hire, the hall is ideal for clubs/organisations as well as private functions,concerts, birthday parties, anniversaries, wedding reception, small exhibitions,  and concerts.

All facilities Ofsted Approved
