Smaller groups will then be able to meet in a virtual coffee shop after the service.

30 July 2020:   An update from the Vicar at St Mary's Parish Church, North Mymms, the Revd Ruth Barr

Dear Parishioners,

St Mary's church is now open for private prayer on Sunday afternoons from 2-5pm. The safety of those who visit us is paramount.

There are new regulations in place for those who would like to come in and pray quietly.

We have had to introduce stringent new cleaning for those who visit, the kneelers, hymn books, prayer cards, pew cushions have therefore been removed. The toilets and kitchen facilities are not available at this time. Hand sanitiser must be used on entry and masks worn whilst inside. There are certain pews which are not accessible and a one-way system has been put in place to ensure those moving about the building do not come into contact with others. Please adhere to instructions given to you as you arrive.

The PCC have met to discuss when we will reopen for corporate worship and have agreed that we will trial this on Sunday September 6th at the new time of 11am.

We will continue to worship together at home through Zoom at 9.30am for those who feel the current climate causes too many restrictions or they feel unsafe to venture back into the building at this time.

You can still visit our church virtually and see it as you may remember it by visiting this link

Blessings to you at such a difficult time.
