Welcome to St Mary's Charlcombe

Welcome!  Our weekly services of worship usually take place on Sundays at 9am in church.  There is also an online service available every Sunday on our YouTube Channel (you can also find us on Facebook and Twitter).  


When the current state of the pandemic make it possible, St Mary’s opens for private prayer between 10am and 4pm everyday.  Please do make use of the church building or gardens to pray, but please do bring a facemask if coming inside the church.  If you are not able to visit the church but would appreciate some prayers we meet to pray via Zoom each Monday between 9:30am and 10am (please contact us for the link). Alternatively click here if you would like to request prayers.


You can find out more about who we are here: the people, The Friends of St Mary’s Charlcombe, the place, and the welcome we’d like to extend to you.  You can also find out about what’s happening at St Mary’s beyond the Sunday services here in “What’s on“.


The beauty, peace and presence of St Mary’s makes it a place that fits both times of celebration and lament.  If you would like to find out more about Baptisms, Weddings or Funerals please visit the Life Events section of the website.

Our Ministries


Mission is the living out of our faith in the world, bringing the love of god to humanity through prayer and action. We place great emphasis on three means of doing this: Hospitality, Generosity, Inclusion.


The Coronavirus pandemic is limiting our ability to open our church as much as we would like, but our garden is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!


Eucharist comes from the Greek and means offer graciously. Holy Communion is available to all and is offered in a COVID-19 safe manner. 


We are lucky enough to have an ancient and absolutely beautiful church which we wish as many as possible to enjoy, whether christian or not. We have strong links with ‘Living Springs’, the LGBT church in Bath, and are looking for ways to share our ministry.  We are now Dementia Friendly too
