"We, the members of St Mary Magdalene Church, Cowden, seek to achieve the best in our service and worship of God the Father and Jesus Christ our Saviour and by the help and power of the Holy Spirit to give our personal best endeavours to love one another as Christ loves us. We also encourage the use of our spiritual gifts and practical talents for the building up of the church and to make known the gospel of Christ's redeeming love to all mankind and especially to those of our own community."
