Welcome to St Mary's
The Church of St Mary in Peterborough serves as a place of worship for the people of our parish and as a centre for a range of local community activities.
Our main service each week is the Family Communion which takes place on Sunday mornings at 10.00am. We are an all ages church and everyone is invited to attend. Any children who wish can take part in our Sunday Club during the service. We also hold a number of other Prayer and Communion services through the week. For details see our Services page.
