About Us

St Mary the Virgin is the Church of England (Anglican) church for Gillingham. We try to be an open, kind and joyful Christian community, loving God, each other and the world. 

The church building is open most of the week for prayer, peace and silence. There are lots of different activities which go on on Sundays and throughout the week. On Sundays there are services each week at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Please see the diary for more details. Lots of things happen at St Mary's each month, for example, meditation, messy church, church youth group, soulspace, bellringing, and choir, social action projects... there are many more regular and one off activities through the year. Please have a look at the church magazine or Sunday bulletin for more details. 

Public car parks and on-street parking places are close by and free on Sundays. The main south door is fine for wheelchair access. 

Wherever you are on your faith journey I hope you will find St Mary's a place of welcome and refreshment.
