St Mary Barnes

St Mary’s is a parish church in the heart of the community. We are a member of Inclusive Church, a church which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate. Our life together is centred around our worship which takes place every Sunday and at other times of the week too. We are an Anglican Church which has witnessed to and served this community for over 800 years. Rooted in the love of God revealed to us in Jesus Christ, we value the Anglican traditions of thoughtful, exploring faith. We are young, old and middling and we hope that everyone will be able to draw closer to God by sharing in our church life.

We are an outward looking church that uses our church and its facilities for the enrichment of our community through a wide variety of cultural events and we serve the community by supporting local charities with time and talents as well as engaging with the wider world by our connections in South Sudan and Zimbabwe.
