We are a group of younger adult members of the church who are seeking to get to know each other and God better. We vary in ages (the upper age limit is not strict!) and life stages - from just off to uni to students, professionals and parents of small children. Together we form a community within the wider St Mary’s community. We are a place to belong, as well as a place from which to lead and serve.



We aim to meet at least once per half term for socials, as well as other informal gatherings. In the past we have enjoyed pizza making nights, picnics on the Downs, BBQs and games nights. We try to advertise upcoming events in church news but sometimes they are more spontaneous (FLASH MOB BBQ anyone? – apologies if you’re reading this in dreary November)!  So do get in touch if you’d like to come to the next one. 

Home groups 

We are also looking to start two new home groups under our 18-35’s banner. One is aimed at students and young professionals who are free in the evenings. The other is for parents of young babies and toddlers (which will meet daytime at the weekend). These will offer opportunities to pray, study the bible and grow in our faith. 

We all come together for our socials which are designed to be an easy entry to the group, and a good way to invite your friends along. 

Get in touch

If you would like to connect with us, please email the church office office@stmarysb.org.uk and Angie or one of the office team will put you in touch!
