Dear friends,

Please join our Benefice Quiz Night – on Thursday 9th July at 7pm (see the Zoom link below).

The Quiz will be led by our new arrivals, Paul and Jeanette Sunderland. This will be a great way for us to get to know them (and for them to get to know us).  

The Benefice Zoom Quiz is really easy to enter:

  • before the 9th just click on the Donate button at the foot of the church website https://www.richmondhudswellparish.org.uk/ and make a suggested donation of between £2 and £5
  • on the 9th join at any time from 6:45pm by clicking on the link (or dialling the number) shown at the foot of this message: your ‘team’ will be your box in the Zoom gallery
  • bring your own drinks and nibbles!

Afterwards, prizes will be awarded for the highest scores, and the evening will continue with conversation over further drinks and nibbles…

See you there,

Interactive Zoom Choral Evensong

We are very much looking forward to holding our first ever Zoom Choral Evensong this Sunday 5th July at 6.30pm.  

We wish it to be as interactive as possible.  What we hope to do is use pre-recorded music that also offers a scrolling music score (with words) that we can all sing along to.  As we will all be on 'mute' there will  be no danger of anyone else hearing us!

Beneath the zoom invitation is the list of music and clips that we wish to use.  Whilst you will not need this for the service you are most welcome to have a look at what we will be singing or listening to during evensong or to use on your own at a later date.  

Please spread the word and pass on the invite!  As ever, all are welcome. Please note there may be a slight delay as you wait to join the service - Zoom have introduced a new security feature!

St Mary's is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Topic: Choral Evensong

Bishop John's latest book...

Bishop John has recently had a new book published called Handbook of Christian Ministry - for lay and ordained Christians.  He has very kindly dedicated it to all his friends at St Mary's Church.  He writes  "I want to pay tribute to friends at St Mary's Church Richmond...where it's now my pleasure to worship and share in ministry".

If you would like to buy his book for a reduced price of £10 then get in touch with him via email johnlpritchard@btinternet.com or call him on 01748 850854 and he can arrange how to get it to you.

St Mary’s Church, Richmond, North Yorkshire  Dial-In Services

We have set up this resource to try and reach out to those people who do not have access to computers or who may find internet access difficult.

Our aim is to hold Compline services on Wednesday and Sunday evenings at 6.30pm.  

Plus you may wish to dial-in and hear the “St Mary’s Live Communion Service” which we hold at 10am on a Sunday morning.

We will try and add other services in to our package of services but we wish to start off carefully and do things as well as we can so that it is helpful to you rather than frustrating.

Services will be led by familiar voices from within the Ministry Team.


Dial: 0333 0110 946

Room number: 96619350 #

Guest PIN: 8196 #

You will hear some blurb about how much we’ve saved by using the company (it hasn’t cost us anything).  The cost of the call will be no more than a local call. 

(The phone lines will be opened from approximately 15 mins before the service is due to start.  This means that you may have a wait before the start, but it may reduce the pressure to try and dial-in at exactly the right time. The service will not start before the scheduled time.)

Christian Aid Week

Every May we would normally raise approximately £3,000 around Richmond but this cannot happen in the same way this year.

Christian Aid supports some of the most vulnerable people who need our support now more than ever as coronavirus spreads across the world. An e-envelope is now available for our own donations and for us to send to as many people as possible over the next few weeks.

Please see the Christian Aid website here for more details.

Thanks from Judith Barber and the St Mary’s Christian Aid Team
