St Mary’s Prayer Tree

Do come and have a wander in the churchyard where you will find our prayer tree.  Feel free to leave a prayer on the prayer tree: you will find pens, material strips and hand sanitiser in a box on the prayer tree itself.

You might like to watch our video of Harvest Thanks, featuring some of the prayers left on the prayer tree during Harvest time.
