St Mary's is a grade II listed building, built in 1862 at the request of Arthur Pryor of the Hylands Estate, to which St Mary's stands as a gateway. 

We have a traditional but relaxed and friendly service at 9:30am each week. The service lasts roughly 90 minutes and we enjoy catching up with each other over refreshments afterwards. 

Our Parish Mission Statement prayer is: 

Loving Heavenly Father,

Please help us to grow to be more like Jesus.

We want to get to know Christ together

by loving one another, serving others

and being at the heart of our community.

Lord Jesus, please encourage us on our way. Amen
