Many services at St. Mary's are 'traditional' and follow the liturgical structures one might expect from an Anglican Church, however, we believe in enabling the Body of Christ express its worship of Jesus in a variety of ways. We hope that you will find an expression of worship that you are able to connect with and through it, your faith in Christ would be nurtured and enriched.
What's on this Week?
Joyful Praise services are now held at 6pm on the 2nd Sunday of each month at The Church of The Holy Spirit, Southway. It is contemporary and comes under the umbrella of 'Fresh Expressions Church'. Here you will find an up-to-date worship style, interactive Bible teaching and much more.
Messy Church brings families (of all shapes and sizes) together to worship Jesus through creativity, interactive drama /story and lastly over a meal!
