Joining In

There’s no better way to truly feel part of a church community than      pitching in and helping out. No skills required, just enthusiasm       and a desire to serve. 


Sunday Ministry

There's lots to help with on Sundays to make sure everyone feels welcome and all runs smoothly. From handing out books, greeting visitors, operating the sound system, caring for church linens, being a server, leading Junior church, taking the collection and serving coffee – our team does a truly great job!

The Choir

Under the inspirational leadership of our Music Director Barry Holden, our choir welcomes you to come and enhance the worship of God at St Mary Magdalene.
There is a fortnightly choir practice and a bi-monthly 'Come and Sing Choral Evensong' where choir and local community are welcome. For more details please contact Barry at 


Flowers, Cleaning and Maintenance

Behind the scenes a great deal of work goes on to maintain and beautify the church. Do you have a love of flowers? Why not join the Flower team? No experience necessary and support given where needed. The Cleaning team 'the Marigolds' and the maintenance team are always on the lookout for new members too. It's a great way to get to know people! Please contact: 

Home Groups

So what’s a home group? Put simply, they’re small groups of around 6-10  people who get together – usually in someone’s home or a local coffee shop – to grow their relationship with God through bible study and lively discussion. Each group is diverse and engaging, setting its own format and time to meet. Friendship and refreshments are guaranteed! To join a Home Group contact 



Sharing the love and compassion of God in the wider community – especially with those who are vulnerable and marginalised is at the heart of our life as Christians.

All that happens at St Mary Magdalene is made possible by those who pray, serve and give financially to the work of the church. Please read on for details of how to give.

Your giving counts!

In the last year this has never been so true. While we have plans to become an essential community hub in the future, our lovely Victorian Church still needs tender loving care on a daily basis.
This year we have replaced the erratic and noisy heating system with a new version that heats the space quickly and creates a warm welcome at services and events.  Several leaky roof spaces have been repaired and now the kitchen and flower room are safe to enter without wellingtons and umbrella! Pews have been lifted and fitted with wheels to help us create flexible spaces for worship. Accessibility is a top priority for 2020 and we are fundraising for an accessible WC and tea making facilities at the south east corner of the church.
We can’t thank you enough for your generosity!
