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: 

tbe a people and a place where love works.

We are overjoyed to be able to offer a full complement of services at St. Mary's Church, and we aim to make as many as possible with options to attend in person or online. It is understandable that some may not feel comfortable attending services in person, so we have put together a number of ways that you will be able to join with us. These include the use of Zoom (which has a telephone 'dial-in' option for those without internet access), YouTube and Social Media. Our YouTube Channel can be accessed here.

St Mary's church continues to be open for private prayer and reflection 7 days a week from 8:30am to late afternoon. In addition, we are live-streaming Morning Prayer from the church directly to our YouTube Channel every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 8:30am. You are very welcome to join us - in person or online.

If you choose to attend online, our Sunday 10am and Wednesday 9:15am Communion Service can be accessed through Zoom as well as YouTube. Please see our Events Page for the Zoom invitation.

A range of worship and prayer resources are 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.

The ongoing work of St Mary's depends on your financial support. Our Giving page indicates ways to join a Planned Giving scheme, to make a donation (or you can quickly click on the Donate button at the foot of this page), or to be part of our Charitable Giving programme. 

Thank you for your interest and involvement in the life of our churches.

Revd Martin Fletcher, Rector.
