Fellowship, learning and growing: small groups at St Mary’s

Church is more than Sunday worship: being part of a small group is
a great way to grow in faith, sharing doubts and asking questions with people we have grown to trust through fellowship and time together.

For information on activities, services for children and families, click here.  Otherwise, scroll down for  information.  All the groups are best contacted via the churchwarden churchwardens@stmarysbuckden.org.uk

Unfortunately most groups are not currently running due to the ongoing pandemic.  We hope that they will be able to start meeting again soon again
