HOPE 2018

HOPE is the annual free, family event put on by Churches Together in Ewell in the grounds of Bourne Hall. This year, St Mary’s again contributed a stall with garden games: giant Jenga, giant Connect 4, and Mölkky. Things started slowly as 24 June was the date of an England World Cup game. Once the football had finished however, lots and lots of people started to arrive. All of our games were in constant use, with queues… we’ll have to bring more next year!

Our Parish Choir at Portsmouth Cathedral

St Mary’s parish choir sang Evensong at Portsmouth Cathedral on Saturday 14 April. Eighteen members of the choir turned out to sing in the wonderful setting (and acoustic) at Portsmouth. The choir’s next away engagement is on Sunday 2 September, when they will be singing Choral Mattins, Sung Eucharist, and Choral Evensong at Chichester Cathedral. Supporters from Ewell are very much encouraged to come along and make a day of it in Chichester!

A Day for All 2017

Garden Party 2017

Yet again, the Garden Party was rained off, but that didn’t stop the fun as we moved to the church hall. Many thanks to all involved, and especially to the Social Committee for providing a splendid afternoon tea.

Confirmations 2017

In June 2017, the Bishop of Guildford held a confirmation service at Christ Church, Epsom Common, and six adult candidates from St Mary’s were confirmed, along with candidates from other local churches.

If you would like to discuss confirmation for adults or children, or would like to find out more about the Christian faith through our Pilgrim courses, please do be in touch.

Mayhem 2017

St Mary’s celebrated the month of May with “Mayhem”– a parish dinner. Many thanks to all those who made the food, served at the tables, helped behind the scenes, and provided the musical entertainment and quiz.

The Singers in concert April 2017

The latest in our series of recitals, St Mary’s Singers– who sing at our monthly baptism service at St Mary’s– led a varied evening’s concert which include audience participation, piano duets, solos from “A Sound of Music”, Gilbert and Sullivan, and much more. It was a splendid evening, at which we remembered the late Arthur Mathews, who was so instrumental in organizing the recitals and running front-of-house for so many years. He will be much missed, and it seemed fitting that on this day the winner of the Grand National was “One for Arthur”!

Getting ready for Christmas

The parish choir sang carols at Ewell Yule in Ewell Village:

Winter Wonderland was our parish Christmas dinner:

Many thanks to all who made the above possible, and to all involved in the six school carol services and nativities we have hosted in the run up to Christmas. It has been good to welcome over 1900 pupils, teachers, and parents to church over this time.
