Public worship for all!

Worship at St Mary's and discover God's love for You!

Our main Sunday worship and services are traditional and accessible; designed to be inclusive and welcoming and aware of the needs of young and old alike. We stand in a liberal Anglican catholic tradition, one which is open to the movement of the Spirit and adaptive to change. Several of our services are new in form and are aimed at attracting disciples from all walks of life. We believe in the transforming power of Jesus at work in us through worship and therefore expect to be changed to meet the challenges of God's mission. We think there is something that fits for you, and if not we are prepared to try new things.
