Our Vision: To know Christ and to make Him known to all
Our Mission: Bringing people together knowing that all are invited and welcome to share our love and worship of our Lord Jesus Christ
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
St Mary the Virgin Church has served the people of Hayes, Kent for over 800 years. The Parish comprises 8,500 residents and the church is at the heart of our community.
We embrace people of all ages and backgrounds who have in some way been challenged and changed by the love of God, made known through the work of his Son, Jesus Christ.
We meet together to celebrate that love in our Sunday worship, learn more about it in groups and find strength to convey it in all our relationships.
Day by day we seek the help of the Holy Spirit to know Christ better and make him known to others.
We warmly welcome all who come through the doors of our lovely church.
