The church is a diverse community with a lively and mixed congregation who participate in traditional and contemporary worship.
A significant number of people are engaged in home groups and other social gatherings that are both spiritual and social, including children and young people.
Others care for our significant Grade I* listed building and promote mission through heritage and tourism.
We hope you will find a welcome whatever the purpose of your visit and we invite you to allow some time to connect with the history and spirituality that speaks of engagement with God both in the past and present.
Our aim is to promote the church as a 'sacred place' at the heart of the community that is as accessible to as many people as possible.
Visitors to the church can be assured of a friendly welcome, whether exploring the treasure of its history, wishing to take part in one of our variety of services or seeking a quiet place for private prayer.
It is our aim that St Mary of Charity remains not just a reminder of the past but a vital part of the modern community for the future.
Our vision is to encourage diversity of opportunity for Christian worship and broaden access and use of the church by offering a range of activities.
