St. Mary’s provides a spiritual heartbeat for the village of Boston Spa. Morning Prayer is said here by our clergy most days of the week, and the church has a long tradition of being kept open (Mondays to Saturdays) from 9am until early evening for private prayer or simply as a place for a few minutes of peace and quiet. On Sundays it is open at 7.45am when an 8.00am service of Holy Communion is celebrated, on the 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th Sundays of the month.
Our Parish Room is used by community groups, and the Parish Office here is the administrative hub of the four churches of the Benefice of Bramham.
Our church school, St Mary’s C.E. Primary, is not far away, and many local schools in the area hold services and events here.
There is a carpark next to the church (in Church Fields to the west of the church). Disabled or other visitors who are less fleet of foot are welcome to drive down the church drive and be dropped off at the main door. A parking space can be reserved near the church entrance on request.
The church has flat access from the roadside and no steps to gain access. A button operated automatic door has been fitted to assist wheelchair users. Our orders of service follow RNIB guidelines for ease of reading. The church has a hearing loop fitted.
