Welcome to St Mary’s, the third oldest Anglican Parish in South Australia.
We value the word of Scripture, the privilege of prayer and the sanctity of the Holy Sacraments.
- We recognise the Kaurna people as the traditional custodians of the Adelaide Plains.
- We express our gratitude in the sharing of this land;
- Our sorrow for the personal, spiritual and cultural costs of that sharing; and
- Our hope that we may walk together in harmony in the spirit of reconciliation.
Our Mission Statement “To share living water with those who thirst” and our Mission Plan: “To facilitate the leading of the Holy Spirit through prayer, creative thinking, ingenuity, energetic action and the appropriation of resources” are foremost in parish life.
Visitors are made to feel welcome and the invitation to join the parish family is always open to one and all.
The parish welcome extends beyond worship and into community involvement through our outreach programs of “St Mary’s with Anglicare SA” – The Picket Fence Community Centre and The Project Centre.
