St Mary the Virgin - Chislet

Welcome to St Mary’s Church, Chislet, part of the Wantsum Benefice. We are a group of four churches bringing alive the good news of Jesus to our communities situated along the River Wantsum.

We are here to serve the people in the areas of Chislet, Minster, Monkton and St Nicholas-at-Wade by making real the love of God through Jesus Christ.

Whether you live locally, are a visitor, looking for something new or have questions to ask we hope you will come and join us and be part of the journey we are making together.

We'd love to welcome you to any of our events and activities, or at a Sunday service at any of our churches.

We know that going to church for the first time can feel strange, so we'll do everything we can to make you feel welcome and at ease.

Whatever's going on in your life, just come as you are, and see what difference God can make.
