Welcome to St Mary’s Parish Church, Bideford
Thank you for clicking onto St Marys Church website. A very warm welcome to you!
St Marys Parish Church is tucked behind the Town Council Building, close to the Old Bridge in Bideford. Due to its locality there is a danger it can be over looked! This website seeks to be our ‘Shop window’.
We offer a ‘mixed diet of Services and Events which we feel are relevant, interesting and uplifting. Hopefully when you scroll down these pages you will find that there is something you feel drawn to.
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 Marys; whoever you are and wherever you are on life’s journey… you are very welcome. Do come and ‘say hello!’
Reverend Claire Rose-Casemore (Team Rector)
Prayer for the day
“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”
1 Corinthians 10:13
