Who We Are

The Rector

St Mary’s minister is the Rector of the Heartland Episcopal Group of Churches: the Revd David Gifford. Originally from Wales, David came to us from the Oxford Diocese. He brings to us contemporary, creative and reverent worship, focussed biblical preaching and encourages inclusive leadership.

Associate Priest

David is assisted by Revd Heller Gonzalez, who works principally with our After-School Club, Clydemen and Heartland Circle.





Our Vestry is a small, friendly and relaxed committee. We are elected by the congregation.


We meet every two months. We assist the Rector in the running and administration of St Mary's.



Our History began in the early 1800s...


St Mary's is member of the global Anglican Communion. You can find more about this here.
