Appointment of our new Vicar

We recently announced the appointment of Revd Nigel Taylor, currently Team Rector of Kidderminster Ismere in the Diocese of Worcester. Although Nigel and Kate will be sad to be leaving Kidderminster where they have been settled for 7 years, Nigel felt a strong call to apply for the post in St Mary Monkseaton and they are both now excited at the prospect of a new adventure following that call. They look forward to meeting the congregation and people of the parish and becoming established in the community in another beautiful part of the country. We continue to pray for Nigel and Kate, and look forward to welcoming them into our church community.


12th Sunday after Trinity, Sunday 4th September

Revd Audrey Elkington will be presiding and preaching at both 8am Holy Communion and 10am Sung Eucharist.


Wednesday 10.30am Services

Wednesday 7th September will mark the resumption of Wednesday 10.30am Holy Communion, on this occasion with Revd Peter Dunlop. On Wednesday 31st August, the church will be open for private prayer from 10.30 – 11.30am for the final time.



The next OWLS meeting is Friday 9th September at 12 noon - we are looking forward to seeing everyone back after the summer! Please sign up on the sheet in the vestibule by Sunday 4th September for me to order lunches.

Many thanks, Beryl.


Alison Rudd Organ Recital

We would love you to join us at St Mary's when there will be a wonderful organ recital by Alison Rudd on Sunday 11th September at 3pm. Alison is organist at Alnmouth and Lesbury churches and also plays at St Mary's when needed. Alison's programme includes music by J.S. Bach, Böhm, John Stanley, Franck and music from Norway and Northumbria. Admission to this concert is free, but there will be a retiring collection to support our Church and Concert Series. Please do still claim a free ticket, as this helps us to better prepare for the concert. There will be refreshments from 2.30pm.


Autumn Fair Saturday 29th October

We are very excited to announce the date for our upcoming Autumn Fair! This fantastic, annual event is a highlight in the St Mary's calendar, and Grace or Tom would love to hear from you promptly if you can help with:

  • A stall on the day

  • Refreshments

  • Contributions of boxed jewellery, plants, good quality unwanted gifts

  • Jams or cakes (in this instance please contact Ruth)

From the end of August onwards, an online auction website will be set up to take bids for all 'high class' items generously donated. Arrangements for receiving goods must be made with Tom.

We look forward to planning and holding a fabulous event, and are grateful for all your support.
