Our Vision

St Mary's is a warm and friendly family church committed to 'Making Disciples: Reaching Wider and Going Deeper'. 

We take our vision from Matthew 28:18-20

Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."  

Jesus commanded us to make disciples, followers of him who will be committed to becoming like him and doing the things he did. We take this as meaning that we should,
  • Make new disciples, proclaiming the gospel and leading people towards committing their lives to Jesus, baptising them as Jesus commanded
  • Make mature disciples, teaching the truth of the Word of God, living in the power of the Spirit
