Parking at the Red Lion is permitted on Sunday and Wednesday mornings, though you need to go into the pub and enter your registration on the screen at the bar and let them know you are at church.
At weddings and funerals we ask the council not to send parking attendants, so parking on the streets is acceptable.
Is This Our Church?
I came across the following recently when reading Philip Yancey’s book “Vanishing Grace. ”He quoted something he’d come across in a U.S. Church and I wonder if it could be an accurate description of St. Mary’s.
-Married, divorced or single here, it’s one family that mingles here.
-Conservative or liberal here, we’ve all gotta give a little here.
-Big or small here, there’s room for us all here.
-Doubt or believe here, we can all receive here.
-Gay or straight here, there’s no hate here.
-Woman or man here, all can serve here.
-Whatever your race here, for all of us grace here.
-In imitation of the ridiculous love almighty God has for each of us, let us live and love without labels.
