About us

At St Mary’s, we are:

  • a loving family of Christians living under the headship of Christ, aware of our differences and our need for each other as we live and witness faithfully for Christ;
  • Bible people, committed to prayerful expository preaching, studying and living out
    God’s word in the power of the Holy Spirit;
  • imperfect disciples of Christ being transformed by his grace, equipped by his word and strengthened by his Spirit to serve in his world;
  • united in Christ, believing that every Christian has a vital part to play;
  • a growing church with people of all ages, stages and backgrounds, and welcoming to all;
  • ambassadors for Christ in our town, workplaces, schools and communities;
  • working for social justice in our community and beyond;
  • delighted to partner in the gospel with the worldwide church, supporting, working and praying alongside our brothers and sisters around the world;
  • stewards of a beautiful, historic building that has been alive with prayer and worship for hundreds of years.
  • an evangelical Anglican Church within the Great Chesham Team and Diocese of Oxford

The best way to find out more about us is to visit us on at one of our Sunday services at 9am or 11am, where we will always aim to give you a warm welcome.  Or follow the links for more information on our missional communities, who’s who, how to find us and our history.  We have recently developed a concise description of what we believe God’s purpose for St Mary’s to be at this time, and you can find out more about that here.
