St Mary Magdalen

A welcoming parish church at the heart of the community

Our Desires

  • To have a deep hunger for the Lord, a passion to walk daily in fellowship with and love of God, to know his constant forgiveness and healing, his power, his holiness and so much more of God's character and then to respond to him with whole-hearted worship, service and obedience.
  • To serve our fellow church members in practical ways and to encourage them in their Christian walk.
  • To be a secure place for people to rest in God's love, to grow in Christian maturity and in the gifts and fruit of the Spirit.
  • To reach into the community with the Gospel of Christ and in acts of service with the hope that they will be drawn into a living relationship with the risen Jesus, for his is the only name by which our neighbours, colleagues and friends may find peace with God.
  • To be a place for renewal and revival in this parish and the locality.

Our Commitment

  • To be fully obedient disciples of Christ.
  • To hold fully to the authority of the Bible and to embrace the presence and work of the Holy Spirit. We seek to be a church motivated by both the Word of God and the prompting of God's Spirit.
  • To take seriously our citizenship of this world (Romans chapter 13), and encourage fair trade and justice as encouraged by the Old Testament prophets (e.g. Micah 6 v.8).

We Seek...

  • ...The leading and anointing of the Holy Spirit in all we undertake for him. To this end we long to become a prophetic church which is ever listening to the voice of God through Scripture, prayer and worship.
