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. 

For the safety and security of the building there are five CCTV cameras monitoring the inside of the church. Images are recorded and can be viewed remotely. An area of the church is set aside for private prayer and reflection which is not covered by the CCTV system.

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.

The Bishop of Worcester has announced that the Revd Jonathan Flitcroft is to be the next Rector of Old Swinford St Mary.  Jonathan will be instituted at a service in church at 4.00 pm on Sunday, May 19, 2019.

We look forward to welcoming Jonathan as our spiritual leader and to sharing with him all we endeavour to achieve at St Mary’s.

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.
