Our God-given purpose (our mission) at St Mary's is –
to SHARE the life-changing LOVE of Jesus, SERVING our whole community.
We aspire to provide a place that gives welcome, comfort, nurture and inspiration to anyone wishing to come and worship God, or to explore their faith with us.
We're passionate about helping members of our community in times of crisis, bringing hope to people through local projects like our CAP Debt Centre and schools work. We also want to show God’s love to those further away, through giving to Mission Partners.
As a local church, the only funding we receive is through donations from our members and supporters. We're constantly grateful and humbled by the generosity we encounter, which enables us to continue to bring love, hope and wholeness to people’s lives.
