St Mary the Virgin Newington
St Mary's has been the home to a worshipping community from the village and the surrounding area for nearly 1000 years.
We seek to offer a warm welcome to anyone and everyone. We have a variety of services offering a mix of contemporary and more traditional styles of worship.
The church is also the home to the Cornerstone cafe once a month.
There is a regular team of bell ringers rehearsing each week.
We hold concerts periodically.
