Serving others and making a difference
The Archbishop of York is to preach as part of the national online service broadcast by the Church of England on Sunday 7th June at 9.00am. This will be the last day in his role as Archbishop of York. His wife, the Revd Margaret Sentamu, will lead a time of prayer in the service.
The Archbishop said, “I am pleased to have this opportunity for the second time to take part in this online service on what will be my last day in office. Like many of us, I too, am missing being able to worship alongside others. I hope that many will join us on 7th June as we continue this way of worshipping.
Following Church of England guidelines (23/3/2020) regarding the COVID 19 virus, St Mary's, like all churches, has closed for all services and social gatherings.
The Vicar will provide a service sheet with sermon and readings for each Sunday.
