Our Mission Statement
This church is here to glorify God
and experience Jesus Christ in worship.
We seek to do this by being a welcoming and caring family
in which all members play their part.

Our desire is to find out more about the love of God
and to share that love.

St. Mary's is here to help people find God.
A Prayer for this Week

O Holy Spirit of love,
quicken our imaginations
that we may feel more deeply
for the needs of others
as we put ourselves in their place.
Give us hearts of self-forgetting compassion
which will move us to give
from that which you have given us,
and to be good neighbours to those both near and far,
for the sake of him who taught us
that it is more blessed to give than receive,
even Jesus our Lord.


Thy Kingdom Come

During the 11 days of 'Thy Kingdom Come', it is hoped that everyone who participates will deepen their friendship with Jesus, bring others to know Jesus or know him better and come to know that every aspect of their life is the stuff of prayer. 
To help with this in our parish, there are a series of prayer walks, starting on Ascension Day (May 25th) and there will be 'prayer stations' in church.
There is more from our vicar about this global prayer movement on the Parish News page on this website or visit the 'Thy Kingdom Come' website:
Details of all the prayer walks are on the 'Events' page.
  In the wake of
  the Manchester bombing,
  the church is open all day
  for prayer today.
