We want everyone who comes to St Mary's to feel as though they belong as they grow in their relationships with God and with one another.
Welcome, Worship, Relationship, Growth and Witness are all among our core values at St Mary's, and our Small Groups are a central way in which those things happen within the life of the church.
Several groups meet each week - mainly in people's homes, offering a warm, friendly and safe environment for us to support and encourage one another, to look at the Bible together and to explore the Sunday teaching further.
To find out more, or if you'd like to join a home group, please e-mail or call the church office on 01608 642688.
