Coronavirus Update

This page will be regularly updated to reflect the response of St Mary The Boltons to the Coronavirus outbreak, guided by advice from the government and the Church of England.

 St Mary The Boltons is now open daily, including for Sunday worship, weekday Morning and Evening Prayer and for private prayer.

Our garden is available for peaceful contemplation.

Each week a podcast of worship is produced, and can be found here

If you would like to receive our weekly email which details services and news for the week, please email and you will be added to the circulation list

You may wish to pray the Church of England’s prayer for the current situation:

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
