The Church of St. Mary is the parish church in the village of Worsbrough in South Yorkshire, England. It is a Church of England church in the Diocese of Sheffield. The building is Grade I listed and was built in the 12th century, however evidence of Saxon stonework suggests an older building on this site. Parts of the chancel are early Norman but the church underwent several alterations in the 14th and 15th century including the installing of the south door with its Gothic inscription which dates to 1480.

Seventy five miners who were killed in the 1849 Darley Main Colliery disaster lay buried in the churchyard in a mass grave.
