A Celebration Baptism

Baptism Celebration

Today we have started Lindsay on her Christian journey. God has touched her with his Love and given her a place among his people. God promises to be with her in joy and sorrow, to be her guide in life, and to bring her safely to heaven.

In baptism God invites us on a life-long journey. Together with all God’s people Lindsay will explore the way of Jesus and grow in her friendship with God, in the love for his people, and in serving others.

Baptism of Aria-Renae

Welcome to the Family Aria-Renea!

On Sunday 10th September 2017 we welcomed Aria-Renae Brolly into the St Mary’s Church Family with her family and friends where she was baptised with water. It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith for her and a special day for all her friends and family.

Over the years to come, it’s a journey Aria-Renae’s family will share together by being there for her to talk to about the bigger questions of life – questions about hope, faith and love. Her family and friends will pray for her through the ups and downs of her faith journey, showing her practically how to make those good choices in life and helping her to learn more about her Christian faith, through the church and with her Church Family.

Palm Sunday Service 2017

Palm Sunday commemorates Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem. As he rode into the city on a donkey, his followers spread palm branches at his feet and called him “Hosanna” or “savior.” Palm branches were considered symbols of victory and triumph at the time.

For those who missed our Palm Sunday service we have produced a video hosted on our YouTube channel. If you would like to find out more about St Mary’s you can email us or call in to say hello at the Church on Park Road in Camberley. Our Family Service starts at 10:30 on Sunday’s. We hope to welcome you soon.

John 12:12-19 NIV

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King
12 The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. 13 They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna! ” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the king of Israel!” 14 Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, as it is written: 15 “Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion; see, your king is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.” 16 At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that these things had been done to him. 17 Now the crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to spread the word. 18 Many people, because they had heard that he had performed this sign, went out to meet him. 19 So the Pharisees said to one another, “See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after him!”

Cafe Church – Mothers Day 2017

Today’s café Church was to celebrate Mother’s Day!

Whilst some of the Dad’s prepared the posies in one of the Centre’s rooms, the main event was hosted by Katherine, who kept us all entertained with some funny Mother’s Day videos. The Bible reading was performed by The Crossley Family and catering was provided by Sue and Darren and this week was a continental offering.

The event was filmed (and shortened to 45 minutes) for all those who were unable to join us, and has been uploaded to YouTube here =>

Working day at St Mary’s

St Mary's work party

St Mary’s work day!

Every few months some of our Church family come together to have a bit of a tidy up, which keeps things looking great for our Community. We carry out some general maintenance, a bit of weeding, run the hoover round and polish the brass amongst loads of other things that always need doing.

We’re always looking for volunteers to help, so if you’ve got a few hours to spare we’d love to hear from you. We’re always rewarded with some delicious bacon rolls or similar and coffee/tea to keep us happy!

If you’ve got a spare 3 minutes or so, why not check out our video of the day.
