St Mary's is an historic Church of England Parish Church in the Diocese of Bristol, South Gloucestershire. We are very much concerned with both the present and the future, and supported by a strong and committed congregation we are trying to move forwards while discerning God's will for us. Our aim is to provide stimulating and challenging worship, to assist each other to grow in faith in Christ, and to show his love in the parish and beyond.

Church Opening Times are 9am until 4pm. All are welcome to visit for quiet prayer or reflection.

Outreach Project

With thanks to everyone who contributed to St Mary's Springs of Hope Appeal, which raised an amazing £17,812. The renovation of the hospital at Sachibondu, Zambia has now been completed. The solar water pump provided by the appeal (to be known as The Holy Roly Pump or HRP, dedicated to the life and work of Roly) is complete and will provide fresh clean drinking water to the hospital and the site. It is hoped there will be a self funded visit to the hospital next year when a plaque will be dedicated.

The drop-in centre for vulnerable women in St Paul's, which the appeal helped to convert and refit, is open and providing a much needed facility where women in need can go during the day for companionship, care and safety. If anyone would like more information, or see photos, please contact Gail or 612709
