Welcome to St. Mary’s Horsham
With regret, and following government advice, our church is not currently open to the public (24 March 2020).
Regular services, talks and sermons will appear below each week on this page and remain available on the Home Resources page, which has been designed to help you to stay in touch with our church family while in isolation.
Please join with us now for our Morning Service for the seventh Sunday in Easter, brought to you by Holy Trinity Church with David Bouskill leading and Rebecca Tuck preaching. Just click on the video below:
Please also join us for our Children’s Godly Play Story – the great family, brought to you by Fiona Prentice. Just click on the video below:
And, if you didn’t catch our Ascension Day service on Thursday, a short service of hymns, reflection and prayer with Alan Mayer, click on the video below:
Dear St. Mary’s & St. Leonard’s Church Family,
What a strange time we find ourselves facing. The latest advice is that all acts of corporate worship must now be suspended, and so all plans for services over the next few weeks are cancelled. The same advice applies to our small group meetings such as home groups, youth groups, coffee mornings etc.
We have the opportunity now to be ‘church’ in new ways, in response to this pandemic. Worship resources will be uploaded to the church website over the next few days, and we are invited to be faithful in prayer, as we lift ourselves and our communities before God.
Please take the opportunity to reach out to neighbours and friends who may be feeling particularly vulnerable. Phone calls or notes through the door could be hugely appreciated, perhaps bringing offers to shop for one another, or just to be a listening ear, to ease the loneliness.
We have been able to set up a specific email address for any who would like to request support during this time, or to offer help to others in need. This address is email@example.com
Phone calls can also be directed to our pastoral co-ordinator, Morag Davies, or clergy, Lisa Barnett or Rebecca Tuck.
As we enter into this period of social distancing, we do so in the company of Jesus, who understands our anxieties, and our loneliness, and promises to be with us always. Though we may be compelled to self-isolate, we cannot self-isolate from our Lord, who will journey with us through these days of uncertainty.
“The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:5-7.
With my prayers for you all,
You may be “checking us out” for one of any number of reasons. Perhaps you’re moving into the Horsham area, or maybe you’re thinking about getting married, or you’re just curious about Christianity.
There’s a lot going on at St. Mary’s, so we hope you find what you’re looking for quickly and easily – and that these pages give you a good flavour of our vision, and of the many exciting aspects of our Church life.
We do hope you will have a chance to come & experience St. Mary’s in person soon – to enjoy a sense of God’s own presence, His welcome to community and invitation to belong …
We look forward to meeting you!
The Churchwardens are very pleased and delighted to announce the appointment of The Reverend Canon Lisa Barnett to be the new Team Rector of the Horsham Team Ministry.
