The Church of St Mary the Virgin is the ancient parish church of St Marychurch, on the northern edge of Torquay. It has strong relationships with the local community, including the parish primary school. 

We are a parish church firmly in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England, and this is expressed in our liturgy. Resolutions A, B and C have been passed.

Visitors can be assured of a warm welcome to any of our services.   

Please come to the church on a Saturday morning between 10am and 11am to discuss enquiries about weddings or baptisms (Christenings).
