St Mary’s is a growing, welcoming church serving the community of Knutton in God’s love.
Our aim is to provide reverent and inspiring worship, to be all inclusive and provide a sacred space that is truly open to all.
We strive to be a church that demonstrates true compassion within the love of God, showing by example and thereby motivating the whole congregation within the wider community. Find out more about us.
We have recently had our Harvest service at St. Mary’s. One of the modern worship songs we sung spoke of the sharing bread. That idea that we share a bread to feed us all. In one way we see the bread as food and we have all seen pictures of people starving for physical food. But is it deeper than that, in this world there is a hunger for spiritual feeding, people want to find a vision and direction in their lives, they want to be fed, not of physical food, that they can get from the supermarket, but the deeper more life filling and life changing spiritual food that can only be obtained from a close living relationship with the Risen Christ.
In the words of the song.
Soon we hear a growing murmur
As we eat the sharing bread
From the neighbours of our neighbours
We are starving friends, they say
Then we stretch the bread out further
Thanking God that all are fed.
We are a fairly traditional Village Church but always open to new ways of reaching out through worship to our local communities and congregation. St Mary's mission is to make Jesus real in today’s life and part of this is to welcome our friends from the Indian Orthodox Church to worship with us. Our church, part of the Church of England, has a dedicated volunteer leadership team headed by the vicar. As well as giving support and guidance, St Mary's provides a sanctuary at the heart of Knutton.
"We want to discern what God is doing in His world and join in…serving our neighbours, community and wider world."
St Mary's is easily accessible with nearby carparks. The Church is in the centre of the Village of Knutton. Parking is available either on street or on the Community Centre Car Park across from the Church itself.
