Saint Mary's Church, Southampton
Over the summer of 2018 a small team of people moved from HTB to plant and revitalise the Saint Mary’s Church Southampton, located right in the heart of the city. The vision of Saint Mary’s Church is to be a community following the way of Jesus, playing our part in the renewal of Southampton. In the last 5 years Saint Mary’s has grown to around 650 people regularly attending our Sunday gatherings, across 3 services on a Sunday. The average age of our congregation is 27, although we are and we celebrate being a multi-generational church that is growing in its diversity. Our congregation includes around 75 children and young people.
We are deeply committed to the way of Jesus and being formed by his life as we practise being with him, becoming like him and doing what he did. We have a passion to raise and develop leaders who are committed to the Good News of Jesus to lead in church and in all spheres of society. Worship informs everything we do as we seek first His kingdom and righteousness and continue to tell the story of what God is doing in our time, some of that story is captured through our Saint Music team that have written and released music to serve and resource the church. Our values as a community are Family, Fearless & Fun and we aim for all of our activities and processes to be driven by those values. vision to plant and help rVisit website
