Pastoral Care 


At St Marys we seek to offer care for everyone in our church and our community, especially when they are in a difficult period in their lives. If you need to talk to a member of our ministry team or would like a home visit, please fill in the form at the bottom of this page or contact the Parish Office.
The pastoral care we provide includes:

  • Visits to Hospital
  • Home visits for the sick or terminally ill
  • Bereavement support
  • Praying for those in need
  • Helping with any questions about faith or the Church.

You might just need to talk to someone in complete confidence about a personal or family crisis. We will always listen and help if we can.

The clergy team led by Sally, our vicar, are available for visits and email or phone conversations regarding loss, stress and difficult life experiences. If you, your family or a friend would like a visit from a member of clergy please contact the Parish Office or fill in the form at the bottom of this page.

Hospital visits

Our clergy team can visit people in hospital when possible, usually by arrangement with the hospital chaplain. If you know of anyone who has been admitted to hospital or who is seriously ill at home please complete the form below or contact the Parish Office. Visits are also made to the housebound and those in residential care. We would rather be told many times about an individual who is in need than not at all!

Holy Communion

Our clergy team can take Holy Communion to those who are housebound. Again, please complete the form below or email the Parish Office if you, or someone you care for, would like Communion brought to your home.

Contact Form
Please fill in this form for any pastoral care inquiries. We will get back to you as soon as we can. (*Mandatory Fields)

Planning your Visit

A Warm Welcome! 

The following information is specifically for those planning to visit us for the first time, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at St Mary's Church in Church Lane, Wendover, for our two main Sunday services each week, which start at 9.00am and 10.45am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you will be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team.

Plan your journey


There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There are disabled toilets in the Church Centre, which you can find through the door towards the front of the church on the left hand side.

Our Main Sunday Services

Our 9am Holy Communion is a more traditional service, including music and hymns in an established style but using up-to-date language. It will probably appeal to those who are used to more formal Anglican worship.  There is no provision for children at this service.

Our 10.45am Sunday Worship services follow a more informal style with contemporary worship songs. These services are typically most suitable for families. On the second and fourth Sundays of each month, we share Communion at this service and Ignite (for children aged 5-11) and Surge (our youth group for 11-16s) run on these Sundays. The first and third Sundays are All Age services, designed to be rich in teaching and learning for people of all ages - from 2 to 92!

You can find details of our other services here.

Getting Connected

Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out our Church Life section on this website to see if there’s a group that you'd like to join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.

Serving and Volunteering

If you want to get involved in the life of the church, why not sign up to serve on a team. We are always looking for volunteers to get involved in different aspects of our work.

Get in touch with us to plan your visit
If you would like to come and visit the church beforehand you are more than welcome!
