St. Mary’s Church on South Street in the heart of the town is the Civic church of the town and principal church of the Parish of Bridport. It is a lively church which is much engaged with the local community.
St. Mary’s has a range of worship styles. Each Sunday at 9.30am there is a Parish Eucharist with robed choir, and on the second and fourth Sundays of the month the Xalt service, which is informal and contemporary with an excellent music group. Once a month there is full Choral Evensong according to the Book of Common Prayer. The service follows a ‘season’ of themed sermons which are of interest and high quality.
St. Mary’s is the home to Cupboard Love which provides a food bank and other support. Goods are available at Walk-in Wednesdays from 11.30 a.m. Emergency help can be provided but a referral from another agency is preferred.
The Choir of St Mary’s sings a range of church music and since August 2015 is very ably led by our Director of Music, Tim Linsley. Practice is from 7.00 p.m. on Fridays.
