St Mary's is a beautiful old church situated in a dip so that whichever way one approaches, the view of the building is breath taking. Turn a corner and stand for a moment in admiration. The porch invites people to enter and wander quietly enjoying the peace and beauty of the sweeping arches, mighty pillars of warm stone and the spiritual atmosphere. Stand and stare at the glorious stained glass windows, pray in the prayer corner or enjoy the Sunday service knowing children are safe in the designated play areas. There is much history which can be told by those who love the building but take time to enjoy the peace and spirituality that can be felt when sitting quietly. Often the porch and church are decorated with flowers for weddings, festivals, etc. and the building is used for many different activities from wreath making to wonderful, musical events. It is a church for people, to be used and loved. Those who attend St Mary's are blessed - I know because I am one of them.
