St Mary’s has an extensive and growing ministry to elderly members of our community. As a church we value the love and support given by our senior members to all aspects of our church life, but we have ministries specifically for older people too.
Overall we aim to develop a supportive and caring ministry to the senior members of our congregation and to those within the wider parish, with special emphasis on their spiritual welfare.
St. Mary’s enjoys a close relationship with Dennis Potter Court sheltered housing complex. Thsi includes special services, at Easter, Remembrance and Christmas.
Each year St Mary’s puts on one or two special events for seniors. A particular favourite is“Holiday at Home”, an opportunity to catch the holiday spirit without leaving Wythall, and is highly valued by those who are unable to travel to go on holiday.
