Christian teaching

Our faith rests on Scripture and some 2,000 years of Christian tradition, but we must also use our own sense of reason and remain open to the promptings of the Spirit of God in Christ to maintain a living faith for today.

Christians have always gathered to worship, finding support and friendship in being with others. One of the essential parts of the Christian experience is to share the Eucharist together in church. By worshipping God in this way, he shares his love with us.

But being a Christian isn’t just about worshipping God. It is also about sharing in the life of the Christian community. We can often experience God through the lives of others, which is why we hold a mixture of religious and social activities at St Mary’s throughout the year.

Please feel free to join us at any of our services or social events.
