What we Believe

St Mary le Strand Church is built for the glory of God, as a witness to our faith in Jesus Christ.  Everything we do here has this faith at its heart.

We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and he reveals that God loves us.  We believe that his teaching encourages us to love one another and to use our lives in the service of others.  We believe that his resurrection from the dead shows us that death is not the end, and that love and hope conquer hate and despair.

Jesus lived around 2000 years ago, but his words, and the story of his life, death and resurrection, by the power of the Holy Spirit, still have the power to transform us today.
