Welcome

Welcome 

Steeped in history, St Mary’s today is home to a loving and caring Christian community made up of all ages and backgrounds that seeks to serve God in the wider community of Lychpit and Old Basing. 

 

Following the advice of the government and Archbishops the church building is currently closed, and instead we are meeting online. 

 

A number of our services are being live-streamed on our Facebook Page ‘St Mary’s Old Basing and Lychpit.’ Please do join us there. A service sheet for Sunday Worship at Home at Pentecost can be found here.

The readings for Pentecost can be found here. A recording of the service can be found here.

Revd Dominic will be leading a service of Compline on our Facebook live stream every Thursday at 8.30 pm. You can find the liturgy that will be used here.

Please remember in your prayers those who have died recently, among them David Taylor RIP, and those who mourn. Due to the current Coronavirus regulations, the funeral will be at Basingstoke Crematorium and will be family only. 

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has launched a free national phone line as a way to bring prayer and worship into people's homes, called 'Daily Hope'. It was launched today, and offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of a telephone line. The line which is available 24 hours a day can be called free on 0800 804 8044

We continue to be a collection point for the Foodbank. The collection crate for the foodbank is now located in the vicarage porch. The vicarage is on the corner of Church Lane and Milkingpen Lane. If you are able to donated any items at this time, we would be very grateful. Items currently required can be found here

 
 

The church is currently working with the local council and operating as a local emergency support hub for those in need at this time. If you need to contact me for anything at all please do not hesitate to pick up the phone or send an email.
