ST MARY’S: Our Sunday services are 8am Holy Communion, 10am Eucharist and 6.30pm Evening Prayer with hymns. On Monday at 7pm in the Lady Chapel we have Julian Prayer, a very short time of quiet and silent prayer. Tea and Tissues: Members of Ringmer Mothers’ Union will be offering Tea and Tissues to all new parents at Ringmer Primary School at drop-off times in September. This new initiative supports the ethos of the MU to support parents and families.
