St Mary's is an Inclusive Church welcoming all regardless of age, gender, background, ethnicity, disability or sexuality.  We are also members of Changing Attitude and WATCH - and believe and hope to live out an inclusive vision for the Church. Our theology and preaching is both theologically orthodox - we really do believe in God and in the good news of Jesus Christ who brings us salvation and life - and we are progressive on social issues because we believe that God has set us free and truly redeemed the world. We take seriously the Gospel call to care for our neighbours. Our Mission Statement is 'Offering God's love to all'.

We are known for the welcome and support we give to LGBTQIA people and we hope that we  are friendly and welcoming to all the people God sends us -  though, of course, all Churches say that about themselves! We are set in an inner city area with the usual mixture of wealth in some areas and real poverty in others and we reflect that in our congregational members.

We are closely associated with the local Church of England Primary school so needless to say we have a lot of children attending. So there is an active Sunday school and we employ a Family's worker (Family's Missioner in 2017, we hope!) 

Our worship – with around 80- adults and 40-50 childrne - is centred on the Eucharist and we use modern audio visuals to enhance our worship - which is non the less fairly traditional and recognizably Anglican.  We have permission to admit children to Holy Communion from age 7, after careful preparation, and confirmation for teenagers. We never turn anyone away who wants to receive Communion and many of our families choose to allow their children to receive Communion earlier.

We believe that baptism is the foundation of faith and that Holy Communion is at the centre of faithful discipleship, both for personal growth and corporate belonging.

We welcome and celebrate the ordained ministry of women in all levels of Church life. 

We have two clergy - our Vicar is Fr Andrew Foreshew-Cain and he has been with us for nearly 20 years. He is married to Stephen and they have two rather lovely cats. Fr Ross Hutchisson is our Associate priest.
