About Us

We are friendly worshipping community of all ages, with a warm and welcoming heart. Part of the Bristol Diocese, we worship in various forms, share, learn and encourage active Christian living, in a setting where worship has continued for around 1000 years.

From the very youngest to the not-so-young, we love to meet new friends in our remarkable church building - so we hope to welcome you and your family to our church family! Our current focus is on creating connections: making disciples, growing leaders and engaging younger generations. We are part of a local ecumenical partnership, consisting of three other churches and denominations.

Home Groups

Home Groups are weekly meetings that take place in the homes of our church members. Focusing on sharing, support and Bible study, they extend our caring network beyond the church building.

Bell Ringing

St Marys’ bell-ringers have plenty to celebrate: our church bells are historic, tuneful, well-kept and surprisingly easy to ring! Visitors are welcome to join us as we practise this venerable art. Our session usually take place on Tuesdays, 7:30 – 9pm.
