Fr Andrew Downes

Vicar, St Marys Sunbury

Welcome to St Mary's

For centuries people have gathered on this ancient riverside site to worship God; to laugh and cry together, to baptise the young, marry the betrothed and bury the dead.

We meet each week to sing, to pray, to listen and to share our hopes and fears with God and each other.

We are a church that is inclusive and warm and welcoming to one and all; regular or visitor alike.

Although we take what we do seriously, we try not to take ourselves too seriously. We enjoy a good party and we don’t claim to know the answers to everything. All of us are really pilgrims together – journeying down the path of life. The path that Christ invites us to follow. You are very welcome to journey alongside us. It would be super to see you one day.

With every blessing,


Fr Andrew
