At St Mary’s we seek to worship God as a committed fellowship of Christian believers. We aim to reach out with God’s love to the wider community in Highley in order to show the Kingdom of God in action, to proclaim the good news of Jesus and make new disciples.
We try to nurture all believers into a fuller and deeper relationship with God and to be a force for God’s good in the wider community.
Everybody is welcome to join us and to enjoy the times we spend together.

Our church family spans all ages, from young babies to our older members who bless us with their wide life experiences.
All families benefit from a range of generations, and we are no different. Our young people bring the life and excitement to our gatherings, whilst the more mature bring a wealth of practical experience.
No-one is excluded and all are welcomed with warmth and openness.
Holy Habits is a way of life for those exploring or already actively living out the call of Jesus to ‘follow me’. It is a way of life for all ages and cultures; a way of life based on Luke’s portrait of the community of followers of Jesus that we see in Acts 2:42-47; a way of life that nurtures whole-life, missional discipleship; a way of life that, when lived faithfully day by day and fruitfully both personally and collectively, encourages others to join the adventure of following Jesus.
Our lives are marked by many events and moments, and within the life of a Christian, some of these moments have particular meaning. The Holy Sacraments of Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, and Marriage are signposts along life’s trajectory. At the close of life, a Funeral is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God’s keeping.
