From 1 April 2019 St Mary of Charity church and churchyard is open from
9 am until 5 pm daily. 

 

St Mary of Charity is an Inclusive Church.

Inclusive Church is a Christian organisation with the aim of advocating for the full inclusion of all people in Christian churches.  It seeks "to raise awareness about the ways that people feel excluded by the church".  It unites Christians around this statement of belief:

"We 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."



Please do close the glass doors behind you when entering and leaving the building!  It gets very cold in the church, even with the heating on!



Please join us at 10.30 am on
Sunday, 28 April as we have a joint Benefice Service at
St Mary of Charity to say
'farewell and best wishes'
to our curate,
Rev Simon Young,
who leaves us at the end of this month to take up a new post in Bapchild.
 
 
Please note there is NO 9 am service!



If you would like to visit the church, please do check our Coming Services page to ensure that the church will not have a service taking place. 

Tour Guides: please check with the Parish Administrator if you will be bringing a large group to the church.  Please try to ensure your group closes the glass doors behind you during winter!  It gets very cold in the church!
