Welcome to St Mary’s Church, Chard

We are pleased to announce that services are resuming in Church from August 2nd.  This is a time of transition so the rota of services is temporary and subject to change. Social distancing measures will be in place along with other guidelines intended to keep you safe during the current global pandemic.

The church building is open daily for quiet reflection and prayer.  Please follow social distancing and other government guidelines and be mindful of others whilst visiting the church. Many thanks.

During this time, however, we are still worshiping using today’s technology. The weekly service will be posted below.  If you need to contact a vicar during these difficult times their contact numbers are at the bottom of the page.

St. Mary’s Christian Meditation Group

The next meeting of the group will be at St. Mary’s Church, Chard, on Thursday 10th September at 7pm.  This is the  start time so please arrive ten minutes earlier in order to be seated according to latest distancing regulations.

The meditation will begin with a short reading followed by twenty minutes of silent contemplative prayer, also known as meditation.

We have a small dedicated group but if you have never experienced this before, do not be afraid to try something new. You will be made welcome and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have (another reason I ask you to arrive early as we aim to begin at 7pm.

We have decided not to continue with the Meditation zoom meetings as previously planned and aim to hold the meetings in our church on a fortnightly basis, so the following meeting will be on 24th September.

If you would like to discuss anything about this please feel free to contact me on 07922 173850. Meanwhile I look forward to welcoming you at our meetings.

It would be helpful if you would let me know if you wish to attend so that appropriate seating may be made available.

Thank you.

Robin Bailey.
