A warm welcome awaits you at St Mary's

The church here is an inclusive, warm and human community, enriched by many people of all ages from 0 – 90+! As a parish church we are here for everyone in the area, both week by week and at special moments in life. We offer excellent provision for children and young families, and new facilities accessible for all. Our common life is centred in the Sunday morning 9:45am Eucharist and through the hearing of God's word. Music, especially choral music, plays an important part in our worship. But we are not here just for Sundays. There are regular opportunities to pray and to act together, to learn more about the Christian faith, and to socialise.

Government Guideline Changes We ask that, in the light of increasing cases of Covid again and the new Government guidelines since the onset of the Omicron variant, people wear masks during our services and inside our buildings.

This is a difficult time for everyone and we are doing our best to ensure that as many people as possible can continue to attend church and feel safe.  If you are unable to attend church but would like to receive communion at home please contact Fr Grant.
