Church of England Diocese of Winchester Sholing

About Us

St Mary’s is a growing, family-friendly church community at the heart of Sholing (Southampton) – offering a place of friendship and belonging to people of all ages and backgrounds. We believe that God extends his love to everyone through Jesus Christ, so we too hope to communicate God's love and acceptance to all. We also believe that the Christian faith is primarily about relationships (our relationship with God, and with one another) so we try to make sure that the social and the spiritual life of the church community go hand in hand.

At St Mary’s we have a particular focus on children and families - in fact, most of our recent growth has been among young families, and we hope to continue building on this as we welcome new families into the church community, and as we serve others in the local community. In addition to our traditional church services, we offer a range of child-friendly and family-focussed groups and activities, on Sundays and throughout the week.
