Getting here

The Living Church of St. Mary's (TF9 1AD) is at the heart of the busy Market Town of Market Drayton in beautiful north Shropshire, less than 15 miles from the M6. Our main Service is on a Sunday at 10.30am and lasts about 75 minutes. There is Book of Common Prayer Communion Service, with Sermon, every Sunday at 8.30am and on Thursdays at 10am. Messy Church meets on the first Sunday of the month at 4.00pm.

We are trying to be dementia friendly. There are no steps to get into the church and only one step inside which is overcome by an alternative ramp. There is a good Sound System with a Loop which covers every pew. We have installed new toilets in 2017.
  We are a church where, on average, 347 different people attend worship at least once a month and 119 attend one or more times on an average Sunday.    OUR VISION, In Christ's name,  we seek to Welcome all, to Lead people to Christ, to Nurture the faith and to Engage and Serve the community.     We are a LEARNING church, with about 90 people in weekly homegroups; we are a SENDING church as a number of our congregation have been ordained and are serving elsewhere and we are a SERVING church as, in partnership with other churches, we run a Foodbank, a Debt Centre, a Job Club and a Release Group.   St Mary's has a band of active bellringers and a good peal of 8 bells dating back to 1700AD.   Do visit our website for more information: www.stmarysmarketdrayton.org.uk   The Church Car Park postcode is: TF9 1AQ
