and the society we live in may have changed beyond recognition, the
purpose of this ancient building and of those who worship there remains
the same: to be a witness to Christian faith in our locality, and to
serve the people of our community.
back with gratitude to our foundation, St Mary’s is now planning for
the future. We want to respond to the needs not just of our
congregation but also of everyone in the wider parish community.
the coming months we will be embarking on a “listening project” and we
want to hear what your honest opinions are of St Mary’s.

St Mary’s, but of course open to all, to discuss these and other

including at our regular services held on 14th May.
- What do you expect of your parish church?
- How can we best serve the community?
- How can we communicate better with you?
- What are we already doing well?
- How can we do that better?
- What are we doing less well?
- Is there anything new we should do?
- Maybe there are some things we don’t need to do anymore?
- Would you like to help?
like all Anglican parish churches, St Mary’s does not belong just to
those who attend regularly, but to all who live in our parish, so we
want to hear from everyone who has a view to express. St

Please tell us what you think. We have prepared a short and simple survey - it would be great if you could spare a few minutes to complete it.
we have listened to everyone, in the autumn the Parochial Church
Council will formulate an action plan for the next year. With
your help, we hope that this will start us on a process that will give
direction to our work at St Mary’s and reinvigorate our relationship
with the community we serve.
