Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

21st April 1926 – 8th September 2022

We are deeply saddened to hear of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. We hope you will join us in prayers of comfort for her grieving family and to give thanks for her lifetime of faithful service.

St Mary's Church will be open 10am - 12 noon Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday for anyone who wishes to spend some time in private prayer, as well as our 11am Thursday Holy Communion service and 10.30am service taking place this Sunday. Our 8.30am Rise and Shine family service will also be taking place but with a special child friendly reflection and time of thanksgiving.

Members of the community are welcome to leave floral tributes or light a candle in our Memorial Chapel.

We leave you with the official Church of England Prayer for this sad occasion and a link  to the online book of condolences where messages can be left.

Gracious God,

we give thanks

for the life of your servant Queen Elizabeth,

for her faith and her dedication to duty.

Bless our nation as we mourn her death

and may her example continue to inspire us;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
