These are some of the ways we reach out to our community.
‘Thirteen million people live below the poverty line in the UK, with individuals going hungry every day for a range of reasons, from benefit delays to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income.
The Trussell Trust’s 400-strong network of foodbanks provides a minimum of three days’ emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the UK. Nationally, in 2015/16, Foodbanks gave 1,109,309 three day emergency food supplies to people in crisis.’
St Mary’s was instrumental in establishing the St Neots Foodbank and we operate as a collection centre between 10am and 12noon in the Church each Friday.

Café on the Green
Cafe on the green is open every Monday (during term-time) from 10am – 12noon.
It is an oasis during the week where people will find a warm welcome, friendship and fellowship.

School Assemblies are great opportunities to us engage with our three local schools Bushmead School; Crosshall Infant School and Crosshall Junior School. Our St Mary’s leadership is involved on a regular basis and we also welcome visits from the schools into our Church for educational visits and services, especially at Harvest, Easter and Christmas.
“Connecting with our community – Connecting everyone with God”
When we read all about Jesus’ ministry in the Gospels, we discover that most of His amazing ministry was done outside the religious buildings of his day (i.e. Synagogues and the Temple). Jesus met people where they were at – in their villages and towns; on the road; on the shore of Lake Galilee etc. Wherever He met people, lives were transformed! This is what we need to do too!
