Please support our churches.

Due to COVID-19, we're not able to cover the costs of running our 6 beautiful churches at the moment.  Please be aware that we get no financial support from the Government or the Church of England.  For those who give regularly or have made a donation, thank you for your generous support - it really does make a difference.  If you are finding our ministry helpful during these difficult times, or even just have a soft spot for the church buildings (which will reopen at some point!!), please consider supporting us financially by going to the link below and making a donation.  If you wish your donation to go to a specific Church, please specify when you make your donation.  If not, it will be split across all 6 churches.  Thank you.

Limited Sunday Worship

Welcome to the St Mary's website. Please feel free to explore the various pages where we hope you will see that we are a diverse and lively community of people, seeking to serve God and the local community.


All are welcome at St Mary's - from newborns to those of 100 plus!  We like to think we have something for everybody and if we can help in any way, please feel free to get in touch. We hope to see you soon!
