The congregation comes from the small, local population of Headley village (just 675 souls) augmented by worshippers from surrounding towns and villages drawn by the hearty singing of traditional hymns and the warm welcome provided to regulars and newcomers alike.

To its Christian community St Mary's offers regular opportunities for fellowship with a home group (including a Lent group), a book club, annual golf day and regular fundraising events throughout the year.  There is scope for creative talents through singing in the choir, flower arranging and writing for the Parish Magazine.  Those with a Christian vocation are encouraged to pursue it; several congregation members have received Diocesan training, enabling them to preach, lead worship and engage in pastoral care. 

We believe that nothing is better for a person than connecting with the love of God through Jesus his Son. If you have questions about the Christian Faith, or would like to find out more about Jesus and encounter something of his presence, please do come along and make yourself known to Harry or Christopher.
