St. Mary's Church

St. Mary's is the daughter church of All Saints'

The congregation pride themselves on the Church's reputation for its friendly and more informal atmosphere where all ages are more than welcome.

We have a variety of worship including Book of Common Prayer and Common Worship services, and a family service on the 4th Sunday of every month.
On the second Sunday of each month, Sheila Hopkins, our Parish Family worker, will be leading 'Second Sunday Special' in the Hall. This gives an opportunity for families to grow in faith as they share in worship, teaching and fellowship together.
Once a month we have an informal evening service in the Hall where we celebrate with worship songs and prayer. We also regularly invite speakers from the missions we support, or representatives from other Christian work.
On other occasions, members of our own church family speak about their experiences, favourite bible passages or hymns.

We are at present focusing on our outreach to families and Sheila Hopkins is now responsible for the mother and toddler group which meets in the church hall.

We have an active social committee who usually arrange at least one event each month, such as coach outings, musical evenings and quizzes, as well as an annual autumn bazaar.

Every Tuesday morning there is a Pop-In held in the hall where members of the village community can 'pop-in' for a chat over a cup of coffee.
On the third Tuesday in the Month there is a Friendship lunch which begins with a short service in the Church before the meal.
Everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy fine food and even finer company!

We seek to reach out with God's love to all who live in the village, as well as caring for each other as members of the Christian family here in Everton.

The original church building was erected in Everton in the year 1896. It was
constructed mainly from wood and corrugated iron, lasting until 1970 when the present timber framed and cedar shingle clad church was dedicated.
The building is designed to seat around 70 people but, at a squeeze, we can accommodate larger congregations. In 2000 an extension was built
enabling us to have a vestry and a sacristy.
This work was carried out mainly by volunteers from the Church and village communities.

When the new church was built the old church was used as a hall until 1984 when it was replaced by the current, purpose designed, brick built church hall.
