St. Mary's A/V project
As most will know, we are raising money to install new technology into the church, and you will find more information about this here.
Anything to do with technology seems to be expensive (!), so we are very grateful to those who have donated towards the cost of the project so far.
If you would like to help, please see the details on the A/V project page.
