On Sunday 31st March 2019 we have services across the Benefice to celebrate Mothering Sunday.
Find your voice!
Do you want to feel more confident with singing?

The first session starts tomorrow, Friday 11th Jan at 7pm in church. Please contact our Director of music, Renate Sangwine for more info - firstname.lastname@example.org (tel no available on request)
We welcome Tricia West as a Reader, licensed to the Tadcaster United Benefice on 24th November 2018.
Thinking of doing some black friday shopping on amazon?
AmazonSmile is a program that donates 0.5% of your eligible purchases on Amazon to a charity of your choice. All you need to do is start your shopping at smile.amazon.com. The donation will be made at no extra cost to you and you can choose from nearly one million public charitable organisations.
To select St Mary's Tadcaster as the chosen charity go to www.smile.amazon.com and select:
The Parochial Church Council Of The Ecclesiastical Parish Of St Mary, Tadcaster
then shop as you normally would. Log into www.smile.amazon.com each time you want to buy something through amazon and St Mary's will be saved as the charity you'd like to support - it's also very easy to change to a different one should you wish to support different charities.
Sunday 25th November, 4pm, St Mary’s Tadcaster.
In the years following a bereavement we like to invite families and friends to come back to Church for a service of ‘Remembering and Thanksgiving’.
This simple service is a chance to remember those we love who have died, to give thanks for all they meant to us and all they mean still.
We send an invitation to all the families we have been involved with following the death of someone close to them in the past year. All these names are read out and there is the opportunity to light a candle.
Refreshments will be served after the service and we warmly invite you to stay.
If you, or anyone you know, would like to have a name of someone else who has recently died included, and come to light a candle in memory of them, please contact the Benefice Administrator, Rachel Hughes, on 01937 834016 or email: email@example.com.
Although we know grief is with us all year round there is a special poignancy across the Christmas season and we can feel our loss even more keenly, so we use this service to rediscover the message of hope that Christmas brings and find comfort in being together.
Are you looking to do some volunteering in the Community?
Maybe you are a young person wanting to volunteer for your Duke of Edinburgh's Award, or maybe the children have gone to school and you have a bit of time available, perhaps you have recently retired and have more time to yourself, perhaps you have been bereaved or recently moved to the area and want somewhere to meet people...
Hidden Treasures is our gem of a charity shop. It is down the path at the side of the Boys Sunday School and is open on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday - as well as Saturday mornings.
St Mary's Church, Tadcaster relies on Hidden Treasures for income to keep the church going but we are short of volunteers.
Shifts are from 10 - 12.30 for mornings, and 12.30 to 3 in the
afternoons... just a shift a week would be a real help or more if you could manage it.
No previous experience necessary and there are always at least two staff members on at any one time.
You would be made to feel very welcome and would be helping your church and community at the same time.
Please contact Celia Oldroyd for details: 07707062182
For those attending the concert at St Mary's Tadcaster on the evening of Friday 28th September please be aware that we currently have an issue with our heating system and are unable to heat church. Please wrap up warmly!
