About Us

DSCN7179St Mary’s is in the parish of St Mary the Virgin, Sherburn and St Cuthbert, Shadforth – a parish church based in the Diocese of Durham, and part of the Church of England.  We hope to be a blessing to our community, as we seek to pray, to engage and to transform.  You will find more information about St Mary’s Church and Sherburn itself in our brief History and Guide.

We work in a collaboration with our sister churches – St Cuthbert’s Shadforth and St Giles, Durham.  Our staff team covers all of these churches.

DSCN7174Our Christian Faith

We believe our Christian Faith offers hope for each person and for the world through God’s love. As followers of Jesus Christ we are committed to sharing our faith that all might live in the joy and hope brought through the Holy Spirit. We practice this through worship, prayer and service.

If you are new to the Christian Faith or are unsure of what Christian’s believe, the Church of England has some helpful information on ‘being a Christian’, ‘being an Anglican’ and how we pray and worship.
