A warm welcome to the parishes of Richmond with Hudswell and Downholme and Marske.
Our churches are inclusive centres of community where all are welcome. In our worship, our fellowship, and our service to the wider community our vision is to be a people and a place where love works.
In the light of the latest Government’s advice St Mary's Church continues to be open for private prayer and reflection 7 days a week from 9 am to late afternoon. In addition, all are now welcome to attend in person the Sunday 10 a.m. service. The current rules mean that, although the organ will be played, there can be no singing, and social distancing and Spiritual Communion will apply. This service, along with daily morning prayers and evening compline, will continue to be broadcast on Zoom.
We therefore continue to remain together online and in person with a range of worship and prayer resources available on this website (please see the Latest Resources and Podcasts Page) and on St Mary's Church Facebook page. We have also set up networks of pastoral care and prayer support across the Benefice.
Our website aims to help you find out what’s on, who we are and what we do. Please contact us if there is anything further you would like to know.
The shape of our worship may be changing but our commitment to being a people and a place where love works continues. Please see our Giving page for details of our Charitable Giving programme.
The ongoing work of St Mary's depends on our giving: the Giving option on our Giving page indicates ways to join a Planned Giving scheme or to make a donation (or you can quickly click on the Donate button at the foot of this page).
Thank you for your support,
On Sunday 12th July one of our Church Wardens Peter Trewby was delighted to announce that Martin and Anna have become engaged and are due to get married at St Mary's later in August by Bishop John.
Due to the current situation it will be a very quiet service, but there will be a celebration party next year.
Everyone at the United Benefice of Richmond with Hudswell, Downholme and Markse send their congratulations, very best wishes and every blessing.
