St Mary the Virgin S13 9BZ

The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin Handsworth is dedicated to our Lord's mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Taking Mary as our example of following Jesus, we seek to listen to our heavenly Father and discern where the Holy Spirit is leading us and to do so in faith, trust, obedience and love. We seek to conform our lives on the Gospel by following Mary's Son, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through the grace and strength of the Sacraments, the teachings of holy Scripture and mother Church, and through mutual support and fellowship. You are warmly invited to join with us in our acts of worship and social events.

A PRAYER FOR THE WEEK

Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing that you have made and forgive the sins of all those who are penitent: create and make in us new and contrite hearts that we,worthily lamenting oursins and acknowledging ourwretchedness, may receive from you,the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Amen

Our Anglican Tradition

St Mary's is of the Catholic Tradition in the Church of England and affiliated to The Society (under the patronage of St Wilfid and St Hilda).

We are a modern yet traditional, humorous, supportive and inclusive worshiping community. We offer a warm welcome and all are welcome to encounter the love of God with us. Our worship is modern, un-fussy and lively yet dignified, reverent, biblical and rooted in Christian Tradition.

The Old Rectory, Handsworth, Sheffield

Owned by St Mary's Church, The Parish Centre is now leased to The Old Rectory, a registered not-for-profit limited charitable company. It is a Grade 2 Listed building and until the 1950s was the residence of the rector. It is mainly Georgian in style, but parts of it date to Tudor times, though a priest's residence was on the site even before that period. It shares a rich history with St Mary's Church and Handsworth in general. The rector is chairman of the trustees.

The Old Rectory specializes in hosting community events, conferences and meetings, as well as providing excellent facilities for wedding, birthday, baptism and other parties, funeral teas etc. For more information, please contact the Centre Manager: Tim Schafer on 0114 269 2537.
