Welcome to the Parish Church of
St Mary the Virgin and St Mary Magdalen, Tetbury
There has been a Christian place of worship on the site of St Marys' since at least 681 AD. The present church was built following the demolition of the medieval church in 1777. The church today, with its elegant spire, is a focal point in the town. St Marys' is open every day for people to come and visit, sit quietly, or attend any of the regular services.

COVID: Worship in our Church
Following the Government announcement on Thursday 8th December,
face coverings are now compulsory in places of worship.
We will continue to keep the need for additional precautionary measures under review.
The Government roadmap removed most coronavirus legislation, and now emphasies the personal and corporate responsibility of individuals and organisations to protect others and themselves, urging caution. The Church of England now asks that we take decisions locally. At the heart of our approach is the understanding that, as the Body of Christ, we are called to live out loving concern for the well-being of others.
