Welcome to St Mary's Church Sandbach

Revd Bee behind alter in front of choir stalls
 
Lord, in these days of Mercy, make us quiet and prayerful;
in these days of challenge, make us stronger in you;
in these days of emptiness, take possesion of us;
in these days of waiting, open our hearts to the mystery of your cross
