About Us

As a church located in one of most culturally diverse cities in the world, we aim to be a home for people from all different cultures, ethnicities and backgrounds. A home where everyone feels welcome and able to worship together in ways that reflect the full diversity of the kingdom of God. We think heaven will look something like this and we’re keen to get in on the action.
We’re not there yet, but we are on a journey together to get to that place. We will make mistakes, we will get it wrong at times, but our intent is to be a community where every member can fully play, fully belong, fully express their God-given gifts.
Like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, only when we come as we are, uniquely shaped by our life and cultures and then worship together can we reflect the full image of God.

The Jigsaw Team

The Jigsaw team is made up of members of our church from diverse cultures, and is here to support the leaders and congregation in every area of church life to fully embrace, reflect and express interculturalism. Jigsaw will also be introducing courses that explore what it takes to be truly intercultural as a church

Jigsaw Conversations

We want to hear from you!
While we are all excited by what the Spirit is doing we are also aware that change can be hard and sometimes uncomfortable. We want to do this journey as a whole church. To facilitate this, we will be holding regular Jigsaw Conversations in person or online about topics and questions related to interculturalism. All conversations will be informed by topics that members of the church want to discuss. Write your message in the box if you want to ask anything, or raise any topic about interculturalism and race relations at St. Mary’s (this is completely anonymous). The team will address it at the termly Jigsaw Conversations. 

Getting to know US

Interculturalism presents us with a world of unknowns. It’s easy to relate to the familiar, but in a church which has a culturally diverse congregation there are life experiences and expressions of one another that are unfamiliar and new. We want to REALLY get to know each other and seek to appreciate what makes us us.  Getting to know US is a space for everyone to introduce themselves and tell us a little bit about your experience of life. Every member of the church is welcome to share a 2-5min video about themselves, a playlist of music they love or a book that has informed their life. Use the button below to send us anything you'd like to share and it will make its way onto this page.
Listen to  Aileen's Spotify Playlist
There is so much great music. These are just a few songs from black women around the world that had a  impact on me at different points in my life and so have special meaning. From old school gospel to South African house music. There are so many more.. but here’s just a little bit of
“Black Girl Magic”.
