Welcome to the Parish Church of
St Mary the Virgin and St Mary Magdalen, Tetbury

Donate with JustGiving

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.

As Tetbury’s Church of England Parish Church, we offer a warm welcome all. Here are just some of the ways we are here for you.

  • Coming together in our Sunday services each week at 8.30am and 10am to share in God’s word, and to receive the blessing, bread and wine offered to us all at the Lord’s Table.
  • Offering a special welcome to children in our Little Fishes Sunday School during the 10am service, with Bible stories and crafts.
  • Providing a peaceful haven for contemplation in this beautiful Georgian church, open daily.
  • Welcoming families at christenings, weddings and funerals, to anchor these life-changing moments in God:  celebrating new life, sharing the joy of a couple starting their married life together, and marking the end of a loved one’s life.
  • Marking community celebrations through the year.  We provide a hub for special occasions both joyful and solemn – from our popular Children’s Christmas Eve Crib Service to the hundreds who gather in the church for Remembrance Sunday.
  • Providing creative and challenging opportunities to explore our faith, and to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ – from quiet days and home groups in Advent and Lent to an annual pilgrimage to Iona in Scotland.
  • Serving others, including home visiting, regular charity collections, helping to run the Tetbury Foodbank outlet and working for greening Tetbury.

Please do come and join us.
