Welcome to St Mary’s
Here at St. Mary’s we offer a genuinely warm welcome. We are rooted and grounded in a faith which expresses itself in many ways both inside of our beautiful building and in the wider community. We love liturgy which enables us to connect with God in many ways – through beautiful music, word and message. We are prayerful and we are present.
There are no criteria for you to feel a part of us – our welcome is open as we share the Gospel – seeking together to discern what is the work of God in this place. Our beautiful building is the prayerful heart – and we are connected in many ways throughout community.
This has been a place of prayer from its foundation by a community of nuns from Mont St. Michel, through the turmoil of the Civil War, right up until the present day.
Our building is open daily – come and feel this prayerful presence for yourselves.
We are a member of Inclusive Church Network and we believe; “in a church which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate.
We will continue to challenge the church where it continues to discriminate against people on grounds of disability, economic power, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, learning disability, mental health, neurodiversity, or sexuality.
We believe in a Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.”
Quite simply, you are loved and you are welcome! Come and see for yourselves!
Love & Blessings,
Sundays: Holy Communion @ 8am
Sung Eucharist @ 9:30am
Wednesday: Holy Communion @ 10am
Monday, Thursday & Fridays: Morning Prayer @8:45am
