  • Welcome to St Mary's Shortlands

    At a meeting on 6th January 2021, St Mary's Parochial Church Council (PCC) decided to temporarily suspend communal church services for the time being.  This decision will be reviewed regularly.  It has been a very difficult decision to make but, given, the current COVID situation, we needed to consider the safety, health and welfare of everyone.

    The church remains open for private prayer on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, 10am - 3pm.
