Thank you for visiting the website. We would be delighted to welcome you to St Mary's which is the Civic Church for the City and County of Swansea.

Under normal circumstances we offer classic Anglican worship and fine music, in a unique building fortunate to include examples of stunning contemporary art and stained glass.  Obviously this has been impacted heavily by the coronavirus and we've reviewed the services we can safely hold.  We've decided that we need to cancel the Saturday service and Evensong on Sunday through the rest of December and January.  We have the hope and expectation that these can restart in February but obviously we will keep that under review.

We WILL continue with the Wednesday and Sunday services at 11am (but there will be no service on December 27th).

Service times until the end of January will thus be:

Sunday : Holy Eucharist at 11am

Wednesday : Holy Eucharist at 11am

Note that Face Masks must now be worn at services unless you have an exemption.

We WILL also continue with the twice weekly online services and a special online service for Christmas which will be released on Christmas Eve.

Whilst the church is open for these times, only come if you feel comfortable in doing so.  If you do come we have various things in place to keep you safe but if you don't we totally understand.

Remember, Emmanuel, God is with us, wherever we are and that His light continues to shine in the darkness.  Please continue to pray for each other and for all who are particularly struggling at this time and be assured of God's love for you, the love that sent his Son into the world.

Be assured that clergy are available to anyone in need.  Please contact any of us (listed in the ‘Who’s Who’ section)  or email  We also have a YouTube Channel (St Mary’s Swansea) where some short services and also musical items will be broadcast and you can also see updates on our Facebook page (St Mary’s Swansea).
