Where all find a welcome and are nurtured in their journey with Christ.


St Mary’s Church is an attractive Grade I listed building in East Leeds. It is a prominent landmark and is usually floodlit at night.

Vicars can be traced back to AD 1185, but there was probably a church before that.

The present building is predominantly from the 14th and 15th centuries, with later additions and alterations.

The engineer John Smeaton, who built the third Eddystone lighthouse in 1759, is buried just behind the main altar.

Today it is the home of a vibrant Church community and is well used by all sections of people from the locality.
