Thank you for visiting the website of St Mary’s Church. A very warm welcome to you!

At the heart of who we are is Jesus, ‘who came to bring life in all its fullness’. (John 10:10) This is a life of freedom, joy, and loving service. I feel honoured to be the Team leader of St Marys Church and this Mission Community where our vision is to ‘seek first the Kingdom of God’ (Matthew 6:33)

Whatever brings you to St Mary’s, whoever you are and wherever you are on life’s journey, you are very welcome. Do come and ‘say hello’!

Every blessing, Reverend Claire Rose-Casemore (Team Rector)
