Getting Involved

Someone once described churches as being like a local football match – dozens of people on the touchline who desperately need some exercise cheering on 22 people on the pitch who desperately need a rest!

We are determined that St. Mary’s shouldn’t be like that: we are committed to “every member ministry” and believe that the church will thrive if everyone participates to some degree in the community life. It’s an old cliche – but many hands really do make light work. And, as Christians, we believe that we find our identity and true purpose in life as we find our place within his church…

There are many ways in which you can get involved at St. Mary’s. Listed below are links exploring ministry opportunities in the family of the church. If you are interested in any of them, please either contact the person whose e-mail is listed or contact the Rector’s Administrator by e-mail:

Please be aware that St. Mary’s is committed to protecting the safety and well-being of young people and the vulnerable. No-one will be able to engage in ministry with children, young people, the vulnerable or the elderly without first having gone through a DBS check and adequate training.
