Mission Partners

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations..." (Matthew 28:18, 19)

At St Mary’s we are committed to supporting in prayer and financially a number of organisations and individuals, both locally in Bristol and further afield, working to bring help and assistance to the disadvantaged and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. 

The following are the principal partners St Mary's supports.  Whilst we are not responsible for the content of any external websites, we recommend the links below if you wish to learn more about the organisations we support.  Many members of the church are committed to supporting a number of other charities and agencies with similar aims and objectives.  St Mary's also supports the Christian community of churches in the Bristol area through its giving to the diocese.
