Servers prepare the altar at St Mary's West Malling

About our servers

The role of a server at St Mary’s is vital to the smooth operation of our regular Sunday services.

Servers prepare the Altar for worship and ensure that the colours that follow the church calendar are observed. They look after the church’s plate and silver that are regularly used at the Eucharist. Indeed the set of plate that are used at St Mary’s every Sunday have been used for at least 200 years.

Servers here are admitted to the Order of St Mark. If you are interested in serving at St Mary’s, do let the Vicar know or speak to one of the current servers for more information. We are always pleased to welcome new volunteers who wish to help in worship in this way.
