Welcome to St Mary’s, the Parish Church of Fetcham, Surrey and part of the Diocese of Guildford. Our Rector is The Reverend Andrew Smith.
The Church are delighted to share that we have made significant progress on opening up the doors of St Mary’s, both for the resumption of some services albeit in a limited way, and extending the availability of the church during the week for private prayer.
From this Sunday (12 July) we will be offering an 08.00 communion service from the Book of Common Prayer. If you would like to join us, then it is essential that you register either directly through My Church Suite, or by emailing Karen, our Parish Administrator, on firstname.lastname@example.org. This allows us to comply with the current regulations from both the Government and the Church of England, both with regard to the capacity of church (which is limited to 30 people), and the ability to ‘track and trace’ should the need arise. Ongoing in addition, the following week (19 July) we hope to offer a 09.00 shortened said communion service following the liturgy of Common Worship from our white service booklets. Again you will have to register in order to attend. The timing of these services will allow us to continue with our popular Virtual Service at 10.00.
We realise that many people value having the church open during the week to have time and space to be quiet and to pray. We are therefore delighted that from Monday 13 July the church will be open from 09.00 to 17.00 daily. Currently our usual of practice of meeting together to share the Service of Morning Prayer is not being reinstated, but we are keeping this under revision at this time. It goes without saying that these changes rely on the current advice from both church and Government being extended. Please do observe the rules for social distancing and hand sanitising if you are entering the church building. We would ask you not to enter the north transept or beyond the communion rails at the front of the platform.
We warmly invite you to continue to join us for a service at 10.00am this Sunday morning, which we are holding remotely and you can attend by:
