St. Mary's is a vibrant local Anglican church. Founded more than 1000 years ago, we're here today to serve the communities of Purley and the Long Lane–Knowsley Road area of Tilehurst.
We are a growing church, with a weekly combined congregation of more than 100 people. We're excited to welcome new people joining us regularly, as well as many who have worshipped here for many years.
As well as being involved on a local basis we are also committed to supporting God's work further afield, supporting Christian workers in South Africa and South Asia.
Our teaching as a church is founded on the message of the Bible, inspired by God to show us His will for our lives. We acknowledge Jesus as our Saviour, and believe He is at work in our world today through the power of His Holy Spirit - changing people, healing them and setting them free to serve Him.
We very much look forward to having you with us.
