St Mary's Church Brecon

Its perpendicular Buckingham Tower - the finest in Powys - dominates the landscape, making it the most prominent building in Brecon. Dedicated in honour of Our Lady, worship has been offered here for over 900 years. Following our Benedictine forbears, our open, inclusive and forward-looking community hopes to provide a place of prayer and refreshment where all are welcome. In so doing we are a living witness to the Good News offered by Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. 

Mission Statement


St Mary's is part of the Church, the Body of Christ; we seek to proclaim the Gospel in word and deed making known the presence of Christ through:

Worship -  which is both sacramental and scriptural; values our Anglican heritage; seeks to be inclusive and relevant to all; empowers us to a life of holiness and makes us alive to serve God in the world.

Welcome -  which recognizes in all the presence of Christ; reflects Christ as we strive to be a community of love; reaches out to all irrespective of race, gender, sexuality or creed.

Witness -   which nurtures a relationship with the people of our parish; exists for the transformation of the local community; serves that community through love and hospitality; gives glory to God.
