If you have ever wondered whether church could be different, or what's inside St Mary's, this is for you. Come when you can, go when you must. Everyone is welcome. Perhaps you are intrigued to know more about God and what Christianity is all about. Maybe a Christian with non-Christian friends looking for an alternative night out.
Our next event called "Christ and Comedy" is on Friday 17 November 2017. Doors open at 5.30pm and close at 8.30pm. STOP PRESS!!!! Paul Kerensa, the comedy writer and performer who is one of the few who performs stand up comedy at clubs, churches, in bearpits and pulpits (!) will start the evening at 5.30pm. He writes and has won prizes for his work with the BBC, Sky, and other channels. He won the ITV Take the Mike award in 2002 and contibutes to the "Pause for Thought" slot on Chris Evans Radio 2 Breakfast Show.
As usual there will be calm, space to reflect and candles as well as fun
Our last event "Happily Ever After?" on 20 October ran from 10pm to 2am (yes really).
It was based on fairy tales, with the opportunity to reflect on rest and hard questions late into the night. What would you say to God?
There was a prayer well to drop prayers into, and we raised money for the homeless with no bed to go home to. About 50 people were there.
The first event was on 15 September. We invited guests to consider what would happen "IF I RULED THE WORLD" About 45 people were there. Every hour (2000, 2100 and 2200) there was an opportunity to hear "Thought for the Night" from excellent speakers reflecting on world events. There was a short service of Night Prayer at the close.
Every event is different and start and finish times vary for this first series. See our photo gallery here.
There is no Night Vision in December, but St Mary's will be open from about midday until late on New Year's Eve.
