Vision and Values

Everyone is Welcome

We are an inclusive Church. Our aim is to be a community of faith that follow the example of Jesus in showing acceptance and value of all. We seek to serve and welcome all who come to share this journey of finding the love and grace of God. This means we foster an environment which does not discriminate on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. Everyone is welcome.

 

Our values are Making Christ Known through:

• Mission and community engagement with God at the centre and St Mary's at the heart of the community.

• Ensuring strong and vibrant engagement with children and young people.

• Feeding the congregation through profound meaningful and transforming worship and teaching.

• Supporting and developing our pastoral care.

At St Mary's we hold to the core value that each one of us is made and loved by God. Jesus' death and resurrection show us that we can be forgiven and given a new start in our relationship with God. The Holy Spirit is God's life in us, enabling us to show God's love to the world.
