Church Hall redecorated – August 2018

St Mary’s Church Hall has been redecorated. Photos below show the “sneak preview” enjoyed by the congregation at the end of August. Further work is still to be done, but the photos give an idea of what has been done so far.

The hall is available for hire!

Parish Choir at Chichester Cathedral

On Sunday 2 September, our parish choir sang all three services of Mattins, Sung Eucharist, and Evensong at Chichester Cathedral, covering for the cathedral choir who were on holiday. The arduous programme for the day meant that the choir drove down on Saturday afternoon, ready for an early start to rehearsals. The choir adapted masterfully to the cathedral’s wonderful acoustic, and I lost count of the number of Chichester ‘regulars’ who asked me to pass on their appreciation of the quality of the music. Special thanks must go to David Crick, choir administrator, for organizing the trip, to Jonathan Holmes, our Director of Music, for conducting, to Simon Gregory for playing the cathedral organ, and to all those who sang. We are also grateful to Chichester Cathedral for the opportunity and for the warm welcome. The choir did St Mary’s proud!

Ewell Village Fair 2018

The Ewell Village Fair 2018 was a great success. The Fair was held in the Glyn House grounds of Ewell Castle School, and very many thanks are due to all those who contributed in so many ways to its success, raising around £10,000 for St Mary’s.

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!

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.
