Greetings from St Mary’s
Following the government announced roadmap the PCC at St Mary's has taken the decision to resume public worship in the building from Easter. There will be a live-stream only Easter Vigil at 7:30pm on the 3rd April, on our YouTube channel link below, and the Eucharist of Easter Day in the building on the 4th April at 10:30am. The usual restrictions on social distancing, mask wearing are still in effect.

Easter Scavenger Hunt
St Mary's has put together an Easter Scavenger Hunt so that School children (and their younger/older siblings!) can walk a short route around Walkley, answering some clues, then collecting a small something from Gerry the baker on South Road. This will run between the 31st March and 17th April. If you would like to down a copy the hunt for school age children is here: school age scavenger Hunt and the one for preschool age children is here: preschool scavenger hunt.
The Parish of St Mary's Walkley is committed to high standards in the safeguarding and care of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Our Safeguarding Officer is Catherine Burchell, who can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. St Mary's has adopted the national church Safeguarding Policy and it can be read in full by following this link: Promoting a Safer Church.
Under Non Covid circumstances:
St Mary's is a place of beauty and peace. It was built to the Glory of God, and to serve the community. It is the parish church of Walkley, part of the Church of England, and has a weekly pattern of "traditional" worship, including hymns, prayer and Holy Commmunion. St Mary's preserves much of the history of Walkley and is a focus for community events. It is an excellent venue for concerts and exhibitions, and a resource for local schools. We are working to get the church open and available for anyone to enjoy throughout the day. The community hall adjoining the church provides disabled access and is available for hire.
All are welcome to worship with us at the following regular services:
- Sunday 10:30am Parish Eucharist
- Sunday 6:30pm Evening Prayer or Holy Communion
- Wednesday 9:30am Holy Communion
