Welcome to St Mary’s


We hope this website will answer all your questions about our church and its community. If there is anything you would like to know that is not covered in these pages, please feel free to get in touch using the ‘Contact us’ tab above.


Following the Prime Minister’s statement on 4th January 2021, St Mary’s can remain open for public Masses and other acts of worship following the covid-security guidance that has been published by the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales. Public Masses will continue at the times advertised. As before, face-coverings are required to be worn by law in public places of worship unless you have an exemption. After Mass, please maintain social distancing and do not congregate in the car park. Take any printed Mass sheets and newsletters with you.
Thank you.
