WELCOME TO THE
CHURCH OF ST. MARY’S

IN THE PARISH OF
KINGSWINFORD, ST MARY

(Diocese of Worcester)


St. Mary's is the Anglican (Church of England) church for Kingswinford, three miles west of Dudley in the West Midlands. It is the parish church and the older of the two churches in Kingswinford/Wall Heath, sharing its ministry with the Church of The Ascension at Wall Heath.

Kingswinford is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 and St. Mary's is the oldest church in the area. It has stood here for 800 years as Kingswinford has grown from a hamlet of 100 people to a suburb of 25,000. It is a beautiful, ancient building but it is much more than that. It is here to serve the people of Kingswinford and to be a place where people can come and worship God. It is a sign that God hasn't forgotten people and represents living, serving, worshipping communities of Christians.

This church belongs to all God’s people. You may be here as a tourist, you may be seeking somewhere to pray or somewhere to celebrate important events in your life. Whatever your reasons for looking at this site we hope you feel welcome today and that you wish to visit us again in the future.
