  • Welcome to St Mary's Shortlands

    St Mary's Shortlands is a church with its doors wide open, offering a warm welcome to everyone.

    At the heart of Shortlands in Bromley, St Mary's is a parish church of the Church of England.  We offer worship and activities to people of all ages.

    From our Baby and Toddler Group, to Craft and Mobility Groups, to support groups, to our Community Cafe, we do everyting with the love of Christ in our hearts and we endeavour to share this love with everyone we meet.

    I have the privilege of being the Vicar of St Mary's and I extend a warm welcome to you to join us in person for one of our church services or activities, to join us online for a streamed service, or to use the church for your own private prayer and reflection.

    Whatever your reason for looking today, welcome to St Mary's.

    With love and blessings, Revd Gary Best.
