About Us

St Mary's serves the community of Dartmouth Park and is a unique and diverse community. We try to lead our lives shaped by the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Week by week, and day by day, the worship of God is offered here. We believe that our lives are changed and shaped by the transforming love of Jesus Christ. Some of our story is revealed in these pages, but the best way to find out more is to come and see - join us!

If you would like to join us for a regular service you will be very welcome indeed. Our main weekly service is the Sung Mass at 11am on Sunday, where we celebrate the joyful message of the Gospel.

St Mary's was dedicated in 1875, one of the first open-pew churches where rich and poor worshipped together, and we keep that tradition of openness today. All visitors are part of our congregation, and are very welcome.

We are part of the Church of England but welcome visitors from every background, and members of other denominations are welcome to take communion with us.

Children are especially welcome at our services (noisy children welcome!). On Sundays we have a comfortable space for younger children in church with some acitivities to occupy them. There is also a Sunday School which meets each week. You will find details of forthcoming services on our services page.

Whatever your interest in our church, whether as a worshipper, local resident or visitor, we hope you find this website useful and that it will encourage you to visit us.
