Regular Activities

Worship - a service takes place each Sunday morning at 10.30. We usually have Methodist and Anglican clergy or other preachers participating. Some services are based on Methodist traditions and forms and others on Anglican ones. On the third Sunday of most months we hold Communion for Guildford, with a focus on the outreach activities of St Mary's at which we are also joined by worshippers and clergy from other churches. Details of services appear here. Early risers can join a service of Holy Communion at 08.00 each Sunday, led  by a member of the Parish's clergy team and following  the Book of Common Prayer


Open Church – St Mary’s is usually open every Thursday and on Farmers Market Days between 11am and 3pm for anyone to drop in for a chat, a coffee or just to escape for some quiet. We’re working to be open more.
