Ever since the first fund-raisers campaigned for the building of a new church on Claremont Gardens, St Mary's has depended on the generosity of its community. Over 90 years later, we still rely on your giving to sustain our mission and ministry.

You can help in various ways and we would be grateful if you would consider

  • making a one-off donation either by clicking the button below, or in person at church by cash, card or cheque.

  • committing to giving regularly by standing order; this is the best way to support us. You can arrange this yourself using the details on our Giving page, or complete a giving form in church.

  • updating your existing arrangements to help us better cope with rising costs.


Remembering St Mary's in your Will

If you are able, please consider leaving St Mary's a gift in your will, and you can not only ensure that our church continues to grow and thrive, but offer a final and powerful expression of your gratitude and thanksgiving to God. Pick up a leaflet from church which explains how you can do this.


Responding to Ukraine

When faced with the suffering in Ukraine, Bishop Mark has suggested three ways we can allow God to work through us: to pray, to give and to welcome. Read his response in full by clicking below.

Thank you also to those who joined with others on Tuesday evening to pray for peace in Ukraine and the wider world at Whitley Bay Baptist Church, as part of Whitley Bay Churches Together.


Ukraine Donations at St Mary's

Thank you to all who have generously donated practical items for those affected by the conflict in Ukraine. The collection point at St Mary's is now closed, but anyone wishing to support those in need can still give financially to the DEC (Disaster Emergency Committee) appeal: donations will help provide clean water, emergency shelter, food, health assistance, sanitation and hygiene, protection and trauma counselling to those affected.
