Welcome to St Mary’s Church Shalford
All warmly welcome – come and join in prayer, worship, fellowship, events, community, support
St Mary’s church building has sadly had to close it’s door for now, as has every church in the country. But the church here in Shalford & Peasmarsh is very much alive, open, praying, sharing, supporting, present. Please be in touch, and see more on this website too, if you are seeking connections in prayer, chat, care, discipleship, or a listening ear.
If you are seeking practical help with shopping etc, please do contact the parish’s Shalford & Peasmarsh Community Coronavirus Support network, offering mutual support for every member of our community. Do please call for support.
Sadly there will be no public worship or other gatherings in St Mary’s at the moment. Creative forms of worship are developing via this website on the ‘St Mary’s at Home’ page. Please keep looking back here for updates.
In our physically distant but spiritually present community of faith, hope and love, we pray all may find opportunities in these difficult times for: stillness, peace, comfort, fellowship, space to pray, ways to worship, joining to light a candle, growing through scripture, poetry and arts, new depths of contemplation. The foundational rhythm of daily morning and evening prayer, for others, for ourselves, and for our world, will continue every day – separately but together by the grace of God.
Pastoral support and care for those isolated, fearful or vulnerable in any way is always a priority, along with prayer and support for all. You are not alone, please be in touch.
With love and prayers,
– St Mary’s at Home –

Supporting NHS & Royal Surrey Hospital
A local group set up to coordinate efforts to send fruit and veg to local NHS staff at the Royal Surrey Hospital to ensure the doctors, nurses, porters, cleaners, admin staff etc looking after us all during the COVID19 crisis can get access to fresh produce instead of having to face empty supermarket shelves when they end their shift. 100% of the funds will be used to purchase and supply the produce. To find out more or donate:
