About us

9amcongregationSt Mary’s is the local Church of England Parish Church serving the communities of Hollywood and Wythall in North Worcestershire.  Our new building opened at Easter 2014 on the Coppice School site and all are welcome to visit or join us. A growing church, we are a vibrant and outward-focused congregation with lots to offer.

Sometimes our church is described as “low church” or “evangelical” which means our services tend to be more informal than formal, and that we believe God’s Word to us in the Bible is living and active today.  Above all we want to be known in our community as a church which loves and serves those around us and takes every opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with those we meet.

St Mary’s is a member church of the Anglican Diocese of Birmingham and more locally the Shirley Deanery.

In 2018-19 we have set out our Mission to be the Parish Church of Wythall and Hollywood, serving our community and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with those we meet. Our Vision Goals come under four key themes of ‘Community’, ‘Children, Youth & Families’, ‘Spiritual Growth’ and ‘Worship Services’. Underpinning all that we do is a church-wide foundational commitment of Prayer, Pastoral Care, Commitment and Financial Giving.

All are welcome to join us on our journey of faith, whether you’ve recently moved into the area or you’re exploring the Christian faith more deeply.  Get in touch or come to one of our Sunday services to find out more.
