About us

Welcome to Great St Mary’s, an open and inclusive community at the heart of Cambridge.

Great St Mary’s is the church at the heart of Cambridge, standing between the Market and the Senate House of the University.  We are an open and inclusive community, where we encourage each other to explore what faith means to us and what difference it can make.  We are open every day to welcome local people, worshippers, visitors, and anyone needing a time of rest or someone to talk to.

Great St Mary’s is a parish of the Diocese of Ely, within the Church of England, and the University Church of the University of Cambridge. We welcome visitors from around the world to our historic buildings, and seekers and Christians looking for a spiritual home.
