FOR REAL LIFE
Real life happens every day. Don’t face it alone. St Mary’s is a community of real people leading real lives, leading people to a real Jesus.
St Mary Magdalene is situated right in the heart of Newark town centre and held firmly in the hearts of the people of Newark. St Leonard’s is on the outskirts and very much a community church. We exist for the people of Newark and we love nothing more than serving the communities in which we live. We have a big volunteer team, supported by a small staff team. We’re always looking for brilliant people to work here so if you’re interested in finding out more do get in touch.
