St Mary’s is pleased to be able to offer a number of groups for young people. We work closely with the local youth organizations and are keen to encourage young people into organizations as well as our own.

We have a good relationship with the local schools, infant, junior and secondary and regularly run Assemblies, Open the Book, provide reading assistants and sit on the Board of Governors.

Groups & Activities

All registered team members in the church are DBS checked and we have a dedicated child support officer within the organization. If you are interested please contact the church office or schools for more details on 01531 821 641.
