St Mary The Virgin Church in Hutton is a Christian Church. That means that we put Jesus Christ central in our worship and teach and encourage each other to live our lives in a similar way.
St Mary's is an Anglican church. We belong to the Church of England. This means that we belong to an organisation that has millions of members worldwide. The Anglican church is one branch of the largest family in the world -the whole Christian church. It also means that we have a legal responsibility for the parish we work in. This means we baptise, marry, and take funerals for people who live in the community, we reach out to the community in love and we are responsible for praying for it.
