St. Mary the Virgin, Sapperton

St. Mary the Virgin, Sapperton is a nurturing, supportive faith based community that welcomes the involvement of everyone. Our church family comes from all walks of life. We are a multicultural congregation with diverse backgrounds and experiences.

We are proud of our heritage and also proud to be a vibrant, growing Christian community. Following the Anglican practice of combining scripture, tradition, and reason, St. Mary's is rich in ceremony and custom, yet we take a modern, thoughtful approach to religion, encouraging discernment and questions while following the teachings of Jesus in our search for the Divine.

We recognize that each individual's spiritual journey is a deeply personal one and all who enter our doors are invited to participate at their own comfort level in an atmosphere of acceptance and friendship. There is a place for you at St. Mary's and wonderful opportunities for you and your family.
