Welcome to St Mary's

Welcome to the online home of St Mary’s Southgate, Crawley.

St Mary’s is a lively, Bible-based and friendly Church of England Church where all are welcome. We want to grow in our knowledge of Jesus Christ as Saviour and friend, and also to encourage on their journey those who aren’t yet sure what they believe. We actively encourage the participation of all ages in church life.

As well as Sunday services, many other things happen during the week at St Mary's including our Baby and Parent Group known as 'Wriggle and Roll', our Coffee Shop ('The Gate'), Messy Church, House Groups, 'Cake and Company', and our Children's Work on a Friday evening as well as one off events. We also run the Alpha course at least once a year for those who would like to find out more about the Christian faith. For any information about these groups or what is happening at St Mary's, please check out the menu above, or visit us in person - we'd love to see you!
