St Mary's is proud to be an Inclusive Church 

In 2017 the United Church Council agreed that St Mary's register with Inclusive Church and adopted its statement of belief:

St Mary's is an Inclusive ChurchWe believe in inclusive Church - church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.
