Tea and biscuits plus plenty of chat are provided for anyone with a taste for either. If you require a lift to come, just drop us a line – there are people around who are happy to provide transport if needed.
Open House is held in the Parish Hall / Church House on various Wednesdays (have a look at the Diary page for the next dates).
In the past year Open House has maintained a steady number of visitors, not always the same people although there are a few ‘regulars’.
Not everyone is a member of the St Mary’s church family. Local people and visitors to the town join us from time to time.
The reasons for coming are many and various; some people are new to the town and want to find out more about the life of St Mary’s; some have been bereaved recently; some are not able to leave their homes without help. Often members of the clergy join us.
Whether people are talkers or listeners – or even both – whatever the age or situation, all are welcome. Open House is about informality and friendship.
