It's great to participate in the service at St Mary's - they provide a rich resource of spiritual support and nurture and a sound Christian perspective that helps us face life's challenges throughout the following week and beyond.
While this website can't convey the uplifting experience of Holy Communion, or the joy of participating in worship and music in a supportive Christian community, it can share some of the teaching.
We are blessed with the exceptional teaching and spiritual leadership of Revd. Virginia Smith, who leads sung Holy Communion services and of our Reader, Martha Taft Golden, who leads said Holy Communion and Morning Prayer services.
Martha's sermons are appreciated by all who hear them and she's kindly allowed us to make them available here, so that they can be shared with a wider audience. You'll find them interesting, thought-provoking, often amusing, sometimes challenging and always uplifting.
Time for Remembering
All Soul's is a special time for remembering those we love but see no longer. Here, Martha explains great Christian message:
that death is a comma, rather than a full stop, and that it is not only in our memories that our loved ones live.
