At St Mary’s our Anglo-Catholic witness arises from a joyful acceptance of Christ our Saviour, a faith to be shared with everyone we meet. Our role in today’s society is to model and preach the love of Christ. We invite you to join in our fellowship and ministry. At the intercession of Our Lady and all the Saints, let us proceed as faithful witnesses and make our beloved Church of England the best it can be.
A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. (NIV)
We invite people who want to talk about their situation in life to contact us. We can and do pray with people every day. Often special time is set aside for this. So, give us a ring and we will arrange a time if the present moment does not suit.
