Growing in Christian Faith together
Everyone welcome

The Kingdom of God is our vision. With God’s help we want to grow in depth of faith and to follow Jesus in the loving service we offer to those around us, and in helping others come to know God for themselves.

Meet our Vicar

Hello! I’m Adele and I’ve been vicar at St Mary’s since January 2019.  I love the variety of what I do and all the different people I get to meet throughout the week!


It’s a privilege to share in the lives of others and hopefully help people connect with God and grow in faith. 


It’s an exciting time to be at St Mary’s as we think God is calling us to develop our building and to find new ways to meet with people in our community. 


We’d love to meet you. Please get in touch, whether you’d like a meet and a chat or if you’re keen to come along and find out more about the life at St Mary’s.
