Community support

During this pandemic we will update this website with information about the ways that St Mary's will continue to be active and alive, supporting our community.

Pastoral, practical and spiritual support
At this time of heightened anxiety over the local and national COVID situation, St Mary's Church is here to help in whatever way we can, offering pastoral, practical or spiritual support to anyone who might be in need.

We can arrange for regular telephone calls to individuals, along with assistance with essential shopping.  You may like the church to be praing for you, or for friends and family: please let us know.

Whatever support can be provided, the team at St Mary's will do our very best to help during these challenging times.

Please contact Revd Gary Best or Kay Coleman.

Supporting good mental health
The effects of mental health issues within our communities are heightened as we remain in lockdown for a period of weeks.  Recognising the scale of mental health issues within our country, the Church of England has compiled a series of reflections to help provide hope, reassurance and comfort for those affected.  They are an opportunity for us all to read, reflect and pray over such a serious issue that has affected us all in some way.

Volunteers
If you would like to be added to our list of volunteers offering practical support to people, please contact Revd Gary Best or Kay Coleman.

Local community groups

Bromley Foodbank is run by local people for local people and relies on the community’s support to ensure it can continue to stop people going hungry.  Can you invest in the project's future and help provide much-needed support to people in crisis in our community?  If you are able to help with a financial donation, please visit the Donations page on the Foodbank's website.

   Rotary Beckenham - an organisation that supports local charities through volunteering and holding fundraising events.
