WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE FOR ST MARY'S CHURCH, NORTH MYMMS
Our beautiful church has served the parish of North Mymms for over 700 years and continues to be a centre for worship, mission and prayer for the local communities of Brookmans Park, Welham Green and the surrounding area.
We are a warm and friendly church and seek to share the love of God in all that we do both inside and outside our church! Whether you are looking to join us for worship or for information about having a special event such as a baptism or wedding here, we would be delighted to welcome you to any of our services or social occasions.
People visit us from near and far. For some it’s a trip down memory lane – to visit the church they attended as a child or to remind themselves of their wedding day. Others come upon us by chance while out walking or cycling in the surrounding countryside. Many come to tend a grave or to light a candle for a loved one. Read what some of our visitors have said by following this link. Whatever the purpose of your visit, our doors are always open.
NOTE FROM THE CHOIR
Brenda Harris, leader of the choir writes…
"How would you like a good sing?! We really enjoy leading the choir at our weekly services, and would welcome more enthusiasts to join us. We do need a weekly practice to prepare the hymns and any extras, such as special items on festival days which need more than one rehearsal - with a warm-up on Sunday mornings just before the service.
Our practices are on Thursdays from 6 to 7.30pm. We welcome anyone prepared to listen and learn and if any of you out there cannot read music, nowadays that is absolutely not a problem. You can usually find it on Youtube! I can also give separate coaching if needed. Remember - singing is a positive step to good health - longevity guaranteed! See me or any chorister if you want to have a go."
APPOINTMENTS - ORGANIST & MUSICAL DIRECTOR
St Mary’s wishes to appoint an organist and Choir director to start as soon as possible from July 2016.
We are seeking an enthusiastic musician to help lead our parish worship. We have an Allen digital and Bevington (2 manual and pedal) organ.
We are looking to explore new ways to expand the existing adult robed choir who currently sing at the Eucharist and monthly Evensong and to identify opportunities to build up a children’s choir.
We are also looking to develop our music at our monthly all age worship services. We have a local Church of England primary school and are keen to support them musically.
Remuneration is offered in line with RSCM recommendation, plus wedding and funeral fees.
