The Parish of St Mary's Walkley is committed to high standards in the safeguarding and care of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Our Safeguarding Officer is Catherine Burchell, who can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. St Mary's has adopted the national church Safeguarding Policy and it can be read in full by following this link: Promoting a Safer Church.
Under normal circumstances:
St Mary's is a place of beauty and peace. It was built to the Glory of God, and to serve the community. It is the parish church of Walkley, part of the Church of England, and has a weekly pattern of "traditional" worship, including hymns, prayer and Holy Commmunion. St Mary's preserves much of the history of Walkley and is a focus for community events. It is an excellent venue for concerts and exhibitions, and a resource for local schools. We are working to get the church open and available for anyone to enjoy throughout the day. The community hall adjoining the church provides disabled access and is available for hire.
All are welcome to worship with us at the following regular services:
- Sunday 10:30am Parish Eucharist
- Sunday 6:30pm Evening Prayer or Holy Communion
- Wednesday 9:30am Holy Communion
