Sunday Worship at St Mary’s

People have gathered on our ancient riverside site for over a thousand years to worship God. You are very welcome to join with us as we come before God each week in word and sacrament, music and prayer, and leave sustained and nourished to be lights for Christ in this corner of God’s world.

Please note that our 11.30 Family Service normally takes a break during school holidays. If you are travelling to us to join us for a specific service please contact the parish office to make sure that the service is going ahead as advertised – sometimes there have to be last-minute changes!
