An important part of the life of St Mary’s is to look outside the parish and give regular, dependable support to charities and missions in the UK and abroad. This support takes the form of money, prayer, publicity, and sometimes special events. 

Each of our chosen missions and charities has a Link person from the congregation who also organises a special focus Sunday each year. The next dates are shown below and are in the calendar.

These are the charities we currently support:
