Churches Together in Marnhull

Marnhull benefits from three churches, St Gregory's, Our Lady and Marnhull Methodist. These churches work together to offer a wide variety of faith-based and social events throughout the year – regular joint services, a monthly prayer meeting, Lent courses and lunches, etc. The most recent event being the Service of Lessons and Carols at St Gregory's when readings and musical contributions were given by all three congregations.  Examples of previous activities can be found here.
