of the Holy Spirit to make Christ’s Love and Peace known in our community."

Welcome to St Mary's Strensall. If you're new to the church, or new to the area, we'd love to get to know you. We are currently running in-person services, though booking is essential as our seating is limited.

The parish of Strensall: St Mary the Virgin is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of York’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services. For more information, see our website
