Events at St Mary's

Throughout 2022 we will be hosting a series of events
for the local community.

           On Saturday morning at 9.30am we have our monthly online 'Take Time Together', 

a guided meditation based on the stories of Jesus.  If you haven’t tried it before do give it a go.  The meditation lasts about 20 minutes and then there is optional open time for discussion.  


The Zoom details are - meeting ID: 829 2303 2281 Passcode: 2022.

St Mary’s BookBox

Our BookBox Programme (a monthly book/writing-themed event) takes a break in August, but we will be back with a full programme leading up to Christmas. We have three very well-known writers and a fourth local celebrity – whose book actually outsold the other three in The Regency Bookshop in Surbiton when it was launched! Chris Cleave joins us on Wednesday 14th September to talk about ‘Everyone brave is forgiven’ and then we move to Thursdays, 13th October for Tim Harrison, 17th November for Katie Hickman and 15th December for Elizabeth Buchan.  These events are gathering quite a following so do join us – the entry price of £7 includes a free glass of wine and home-made nibbles. The books for all these authors are stocked at Regency.


St Mary’s Church Quiz!

Also coming up is a revival of the long-popular St Mary’s Church Quiz, on 8th October – tickets for this (which includes a ploughman’s meal and a pudding) always sell out quickly so do book early. Glasses are provided but you bring your own drink – it’s up to you whether you think this compromises recall of quiz-type information and so choose what kind of beverage you bring. The link to order tickets is here. Tables accommodate up to eight, but don’t feel you have to recruit seven others in order to join in. We will be putting together teams on the night.

Bookbox Feedback
If there are particular subjects you would like to see discussed please contact the Assistant Curate, Rev. Alison Baverstock to make a suggestion. And do remember our BookBox programme when buying presents. A book and a ticket for one of our events would be much appreciated by many!
