Worship & Community

We are a friendly worshipping community of all ages, with a warm and welcoming heart. Part of the Bristol Diocese, we worship in various forms, share, learn and encourage active Christian living, in a setting where worship has continued for around 1000 years.

St Mary's will be closed from the 2nd January 2020 until Easter 2020.
This is to allow the contractors to complete the final stage of the conservation works which will include work to the pews and timberwork, and the installation of the new heating and lighting system

During this period, there will be a St Mary's Communion Service on the Second Sunday of each month, in Lydiard Park Conference Centre: 10.00 am.
The 3 other Partnership Churches (Holy Trinity Shaw: 10 30 am, Westlea: 10.00 am and Toothill 10.30 am) will be holding services as usual. You will be welcomed at any of these churches.

Heritage & Conservation Project

St Mary’s is one of the UK’s most important parish churches and a treasure trove of beautiful fittings and artifacts. Supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, an extensive and fascinating conservation project is currently restoring the church’s precious structure and interior.
