About Us

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.
