The Ancient Parish church stands by the village green at the centre of this urban community - a daily reminder of the witness, service and prayers of God's people here.

First Time Visitor?
First of all, a warm welcome to the website of St. Mary's church!
We hope that you can find all of the information you are looking for. The navigation bar on the left should help you find your way around.
If you are thinking of visiting our church for the first time, please know that you are very welcome to attend any of our services. (click here to find out about Service Times)
Never been to a church before? Don't worry, just join us! During the service we often use set words, which you can follow on the sheet you will receive at the entrance. You will soon find out that the bold text on those sheets is for all the people to say together, and the rest is for the minister to say.
Most services include some songs, a sermon, some time for prayer, and a celebration of the Eucharist. At one point during the celebration of the Eucharist people may walk to the front of the church to receive some bread and wine, or to receive a short prayer of blessing. You are invited to join them if you feel drawn to know more about Jesus. But you don't have to, it's fine to just stay seated if you prefer to do so!
Anyway, do come and join us some time soon, and stay around for a cup of tea/coffee afterwards.
