Offering opportunities to "Go Deeper with God" is one of Common Ground Guildford's key aims. St Mary's Church is a wonderful place to just "be", pause and reflect. 

Take a look at the "Seasons" section for reflections and other events during Advent, Christmas, the New Year, Lent and Easter. You will find words and pictures to inspire you throughout the year. 

The Community Prayer page includes information to help you pray for Guildford and some prayers of blessing. You might also be interested in Prayer Walking
Reflect, read, listen includes some sources to help you pray on a daily basis and you will find more links to prayer resources here.

During the Coronavirus restrictions St Mary's events have been suspended and there are also building works taking place so the building is not open to visit. More information will be provided here when this changes. Usually St Mary's  is frequently open at special times of need for prayer, in addition to the regular Thursday weekday opening. 

St Mary's usually runs a monthly Monday hour of "Words, Music, Stillness" with time for reflection from 12.00 to 13.00 and coffee from 11.45. Enjoy stimulating discussion, inspirational music, and prayerful stillness. Silent Prayer at St Mary's usually offers another opportunity for reflection on the third Monday of each month at 12.30.
