St Mary’s

St Mary’s is a parish church in the heart of the community. Our life together is centred around our worship which takes place every Sunday and at other times of the week too. We are an Anglican Church which has witnessed to and served this community for over 800 years. Rooted in the love of God revealed to us in Jesus Christ, we value the Anglican traditions of thoughtful, exploring faith and building an inclusive community.
