St Mary's Old Swinford
The church is normally open during the same hours that the church office is open in the week.
Please feel free to drop in at any time to enjoy the space and peace.
Our recent crowd funding campaign raised £1500 -thank you so much to everybody who donated. This means that we can now progress with our plans to install a CCTV system in church to enable the church to be kept safe while it is open during the day.The system will run and record during the times that the church is left open for visitors and images can be accessed remotely should an issue arise. An area of the church, which will be marked, will be left unmonitored so that people can still offer prayer in complete privacy.
We produce a weekly pewsheet which gives details of all our services as well as prayers,readings and notices. Please visit the downloads page to view the most recent copy.
Like most churches, St Mary's is far from being just a local building in which to worship.It is also a thriving centre of Christian activities all of which contribute in many ways to the life of the church and extend the work of our Lord in the parish and elsewhere. We try to involve people in a variety of ways, especially those who are new to the area - you will always find a warm welcome here. If you wish to have your child baptised, be baptised yourself or prepare for confirmation you will find information on this website to explain how you go about this. We are a popular venue for weddings and our weddings section will answer any questions you may have relating to booking and organising your wedding service. We also give details of all the exciting events and activities which take place at St Mary's, as well as some interesting information relating to our history and how to go about tracing your family through registers and the graveyard.
