St Mary's is an evangelical Anglican church (CofE) in the northeastern part of the Diocese of Manchester, in Rawtenstall at the heart of the Rossendale Valley.

We seek to reveal Jesus as we love God and serve others in the power of His Spirit.

We’re just a group of very ordinary people trying to discover what it means to follow Jesus day by day; if you’re not perfect then you’ll fit in really well!

St Mary's Church supports the following organisations:

Tearfund is an evangelical Christian relief and development charity that aims to end proverty and rebuild communities, working through local churches in locations across the world.

The Church Pastrol Aid Society is the Anglican evangelical mission agency working with churches in the UK and Ireland. They aim to enable churches to help every person to hear and discover the good news of Jesus Christ.

The Bible Society was set up in 1804 to make scriptures available where there are none. They work to help the church engage with the Bible more effectively and they endeavour - through the arts, education, media and politics - to make the Bible more accessible and credible in our culture.

The Barnabus Fund provides financial support to projects which help Christians where they suffer discrimination, oppression and persecution as a consequence of their faith. The Barnabus ministry also encourages prayer, raises awareness of the persecuted church and provides a voice to contest injustice.

Crosslinks is an Anglican mission society that aims to make Christ known by bringing "God's Word to God's World". Fundamental to their world wide mission is to recruit, train, equip and deploy people into evangelistic opportunities to reach out to the unreached.

The Church Mission Society represents a community of people in mission who want the world to know Jesus. Founded in 1799 in the crucible of the anti-slavery movement, today CMS people serve all around the world to share Jesus and change lives. 
St Mary's Church especially supports the work of CMS in Mid-Africa and South America.
