St. Mary's and St John’s are the Church of England (Anglican) churches serving our parishes and welcoming everyone to worship and activities.
We are engaged in the life of our communities and are delighted that our beautiful buildings are here for the benefit of all.
Our churchyards are places of peace and beauty, where you can sit and enjoy the sunshine, flowers and nature all around – please feel free to wander in.
