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, and have a good number of children and young people connected to the church. 

The activities below are suspended for the duration of the Covid Crisis, but are left here so that you can see what usually happens!
As well as Sunday services,  many other things happen during the week at St Mary's including our Toddler Group (Waddlers), our Coffee Shop (The Gate), Messy Church, House Groups, groups for older people, 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!

Services at St Mary's

Under current arrangements, our 'main' Sunday service is the Online service which many of us watch together at 10.30 am and then share in a time of fellowship afterwards via Zoom. Of course the service can also be watched at other times. Click the link on this page to watch this service.

We also now have a Covid-safe service in church every Sunday at 3.00 pm. We still need to wear masks, maintain social distance and sadly we cannot sing, but it is an opportunity to worship in the building once again.

If the government's road map goes according to plan, then we will be able to start our normal Sunday morning 10.30 am services live in church on 27 June. We hope that by then all restrictions will be lifted. We hope to still provide something online.

Our Family Matters newsletter can be downloaded by using the link on the left. You can also receive this to your email inbox by letting the parish office know you would like it.

If you need help with shopping or have other concerns please ring the Parish Office on 547261 and we'll do what we can to help.

Our text for 2021:

The Lord himself goes before you

and will be with you;

he will never leave you nor forsake you.

Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

Deuteronomy 31:8
