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.

Unfortunately, due to the current Lockdown restrictions, for the time being we are unable to meet and worship in person. Please rest assured that we are putting together a full package of services and resources which will be brought to you through Zoom, 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 830 am to late afternoon. In addition, we are Live Streaming Morning Prayer from Church directly to our YouTube Channel every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 8:30 am. Our Sunday 10 a.m. Communion Service will be brought to you through Zoom as well as on YouTube. Please See our Events Page for the Zoom invite and further resources.

We continue to remain together online 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. 

On Wednesday 4 November, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and Bishop of London called the Church of England to prayer for the nation throughout the month of November.

Our primary vocation as the Church of Jesus Christ to pray and to serve. We are in the faithful hands of the risen Christ who knows our weaknesses, tiredness and struggles and whose steadfast love endures for ever.

A Prayer Booklet to help you along can be found here. Daily resources can also be found on the Church of England Website here.

The shape of our worship may be changing but our commitment to being a people and a place where love works continues.
