St Mary's Church

Building a Mission Community

Our Vision

Our vision for St Mary’s is to bring God’s abundant blessing to the people of Old Harlow and beyond.

We want to:

  • be a visible and welcoming family to all those moving into the new developments within our parish, with a desire to see more young families join us.

  • encourage and disciple newcomers to the church in their faith.

  • develop and extend our outreach activities, becoming more mission-focussed with a spiritual impact, to grow the body of Christ.

  • be a prayerful body of Christ where our individual and corporate prayer life is central to supporting each other and the wider community.

  • be a nurturing church and develop our house groups further.

  • see a greater outpouring of the Holy Spirit to increase and deepen personal relationships with Jesus, to equip us to serving each other and sharing the gospel.

  • deepen our knowledge of the Bible through good teaching, so that we have a better understanding of what we believe.

    We asked our 10.30 am congregation to think about our church in the future...
