Thy Kingdom Come - Prayer for the Nation

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York and senior church leaders have called a month of Prayer for the Nation during the second lockdown.

The suggestion is that as many of us as possible unite to do this at 6pm each day. You can set and alarm, light a candle or use a light on your phone as a prompt to pray. There is a downloadable prayer booklet to help.

Watch the Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell, inviting us to join this Prayer for the Nation.

Important Update: The recycling bins at St Mary's will be out of order until collections resume after lockdown. Please collect and store your clean dry recycling in the meantime if you have space to do so.

Please use this easy-to-follow guide to what can be placed in these new bins.

Welcome to St Mary's Overton

We are a lively Anglican church for the whole village of Overton.
The church is made up of people at all stages on the faith journey and all ages and backgrounds.

There are good facilities for children and young people to enjoy their own activities. We make good use of our modern Church Rooms with midweek groups running for children and the local community.

We are continuing to support Andover Food Bank during this period of self-isolation. Their urgent needs can be found on their website and donated items can be left at the Overton Co-op.

If restricted movement is currently making food donations difficult, monetary donations are also welcome.

Your support at the present time is especially appreciated.
