Church News – July 2024

How time flies, it’s a year since Nathan joined us, already we’ve more folk in the congregation with new faces each week.  Nathan is planning a Confirmation service, with a date to be decided (Bishop’s diary!) if you know anyone who would be interested, give Nathan a call. 

Our Nether Alderley 200 Club, now in its 10th Year, has generated over £16,500 for St Mary’s towards helping to maintain and support the Church.  The “200 club” has 50 ticket holders who enjoy this fun way to raise extra funds whilst adding an element of chance/good luck for those who participate throughout the year. For a monthly membership of just £5 per person (£60 per yr), the monthly draw has a prize fund of at least 40% of the total subscription income with the balance (after expenses) going straight to our Church.
Membership of the 200 Club is open to all who attend St. Mary’s and anyone living in the Parish of Nether Alderley. Please contact Stephen Maynard ( for an application form to join our 200 Club.

See services below in bold, Nathan tells me “We’re going to try something different this next month. We’re going to celebrate a saint/holy person/day each Sunday. The sermon slot will be themed around it”.

After a conversation about the history of St Mary’s, we realised that many of our older members are “databases of collective memory”.  We’d like to start a ‘St Mary’s history project’ which would essentially allow us to hear stories, learn from your experiences and collect them for future generations.  If you’d like to take part, please contact Nathan or have a chat with him after the service on Sunday.
