We are a Bible-based church, with a heart for mission and evangelism, supporting initiatives locally, nationally and internationally.
We lead an active and vibrant spiritual life, where we acknowledge Jesus as our Lord and Saviour and seek to follow him day by day through the power of his Holy Spirit.
Although our main worship services are on Sunday, many other activities take place throughout the week. Our home groups are at the heart of church life, meeting in different homes for fellowship, Bible study and prayer.
Family life is important at St Mary’s. There are activities for toddlers, children and youth on Sunday mornings and we hold family events during the year.
The Old Church (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 Chelmsford’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.
