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.
We mark the death of J.S. Bach on this day in 1750
Sound out your majesty, O God, and call us to your work, so that, like your servant Johann Sebastian Bach, we might present our lives and our works to your glory alone; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Take part in our Community Survey
We'd love to hear from you. Next year, 2022, will be a special year for St. Mary's as we will be celebrating 600 years since the founding of the Bede House (also Chichele College).
