St Mary, The Square, Comber
Office Opening Times:
All roads into Comber lead you to The Square, which is the town centre. St Mary’s Parish Church is on The Square and is the church at the heart of the town! The Square has streets leading from three of its corners. The fourth corner is the entrance to the church grounds. The church tower is a prominent landmark and easily visible from The Square. St Mary’s? You couldn’t and shouldn’t miss it!

Our worship is lively and cheerful in mid–morning, yet quiet and peaceful in the early morning and in the evening, using both modern and traditional forms. A vibrant Sunday School meets initially in church at 11.00am on Sunday morning, then continues in the Parochial Hall beside the church, the children and their parents meeting up again at the conclusion of worship. We have all the Baden Powell organisations for children. Genesis is an exciting youth group that meets in the Hall at the same time as the Evening Service in church. The Mothers’ Union meets monthly.
Anxious to build up the Body of Christ in this place, we encourage lay participation. Many parishioners read lessons regularly in church and some have begun to assist in Holy Communion. We hope to train some. We intend to run another Alpha Course in Lent. We have found with millions of others that Alpha brings more people into deeper fellowship in the Church. We want to encourage and develop a strong sense of mission and outreach in our parish.
