A LIVING CHURCH 

FINDING NEW PURPOSE

AT THE HEART OF THE COMMUNITY

800 YEARS OF HISTORY
AND WORSHIP ON THE WELSH BORDER

A WELCOME FOR ALL

St Mary's is currently open
24 hours a day, 7 days a week
for private prayer.

 

St Mary's was built in the 13th century. We are the lucky inheritors of a sacred place in which ordinary people have come together for nearly 800 years. We want St Mary's to continue to be a place of prayer, peace, comfort and significance for centuries to come.
We are a small but open and friendly community and welcome everyone to come and worship here or simply to enjoy the church in silence and solitude.

ABOUT OUR CHURCH

St Mary the Virgin is a 13th century church that was presided over by the Knights Templar. It is also the resting place of St John Kemble, whose grave, a place of pilgrimage, lies at the foot of the preaching cross.

A COMMUNITY OF PRAYER

St Mary's is a place of prayer. 

 

We believe prayer is at the centre of our relationship with God.  It brings us into His presence as we communicate with Him, our loving father. 

 

We can pray in many different ways: in silence, in conversation, on our own or alongside others.    

St Mary's church is open 24 hours and 7 days a week for private and personal prayer.  Our churchyard is also a peaceful place for quiet contemplation, if you wish to step aside from the business of life.

A PLACE FOR FREE AND OPEN DISCUSSION

St Mary's is a place for traditional and modern Christian worship but also a place for discourse and debate.  We aim to be a place where spiritual issues are tested  and discussed with open minds.
