Our Vision

We are a community of people who want to worship God and share in Jesus’ love and message of hope. The vision of St Mary’s is to be a vibrant, diverse and prayerful community where lives are transformed and the light of God’s truth shines bright.

Prayerful

Prayer is the core foundation of the church as it strengthens and unifies our relationship with God and with each other.

United

We are welcoming and respond without judgement to all people. In obedience to Jesus’ command to love one another we reach out in love to everyone and seek unity.

Truthful

Jesus is God’s truth and we aim to live our lives in the light of that truth. We will proclaim it unashamedly, seeking to share God’s love in our community.
