HONOURING QUEEN ELIZABETH II
Let us pray...
For Queen Elizabeth and her exceptional reign,
her deep affection for her people,
her lifelong desire to serve the common good,
her humility and grace, hard work and dedication:
we thank You, Living Lord.
Be with the King and members of the Royal Family
as they mourn the loss of a mother and grandmother
as well as a friend and monarch – in the royal palaces,
crown them with Your loving-kindness.
Be with our national leaders at this time of uncertainty and change – in the corridors of power, crown them with Your heavenly wisdom.
Be with us, her people, in nation and Commonwealth as we mourn a monarch and peace-maker and rejoice in the cultural diversity celebrated under her reign.
St Mary's Church is open and has a special place for prayer and reflection, with candles and a Book of Condolence.

A message from
Revd David Grundy,
A very warm welcome to this website, whether you’re a regular visitor or here for the first time.
The main aims of the website are to give you a flavour of what we are about as a church and to provide information about services and upcoming special events, as well as helping those enquiring about weddings or baptisms.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want to know more or would value prayer for something or someone - we'd love to hear from you.
With best wishes, God bless,
Hugh and Debbie are hosting 6 weekly Home Group meetings on Tuesday evenings, starting on 13 September.

St Mary's, the parish church of Holmbury St Mary, is a beautiful place to seek and know God.
Holmbury church is not, though, just a building; it is a community of worshippers who are here to serve each other, the Holmbury parish and the world beyond in witness to the Christian faith.
St Mary's offers friendship, fellowship and support throughout the village and further afield, not just for those who come to services but for everyone, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation and belief.
