We will continue to provide online worship and the church will continue to be open for private prayer on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. We thank you for your continued support and for your patience whilst we look at how we can begin the return back to public worship in the church building.
We are also working hard behind the scenes preparing to open up the Coffee Bar and book sales, following the latest guidelines.
We are a busy, open church in the heart of Hinckley. We believe God welcomes everybody, and seek to live out this inclusive love in offering a welcome to all. Whether you are coming for a service or to say a prayer, to enjoy friendship or being part of the community, or simply to enjoy coffee and a piece of cake in Hinckley’s oldest building, you are very welcome. We are open every day.
Our main services happen on Sundays with other regular services throughout the week.
We gather together at our services to worship God. We believe God is always with us, loves us, and has made God’s self known to us in creation, in the life of Jesus, and in the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
For most services there is a hearing loop in operation.
Music at St Mary’s
We have a thriving and growing array of music at St Mary’s, both in our services and in regular groups including different choirs, a band, a fantastic organ and a grand piano. To find out more, pop in or contact the office. firstname.lastname@example.org
Our coffee bar offers Fairtrade tea and coffee, plus a selection of cakes and biscuits, from Monday to Saturday 10am-4pm.
Second Hand Book Shop
We have a large and thriving second hand book stall. As well as being a rich resource of books on a variety of subjects, proceeds from the sale help us keep the church open throughout the week.
We stock a wide range of fairly traded products including tea, coffee, biscuits and confectionary, as well as a selection of greetings cards.
Groups and Activities
We are a very busy church with a range of activities going on throughout the day and evenings, for all ages.
