St Mary’s is a growing, welcoming church serving the community of Knutton in God’s love.
Our aim is to provide reverent and inspiring worship, to be all inclusive and provide a sacred space that is truly open to all.
We strive to be a church that demonstrates true compassion within the love of God, showing by example and thereby motivating the whole congregation within the wider community. Find out more about us.

“There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens”
Last Sunday saw the end of an era. After 15 years we held our final Celtic Evening Prayer service. This was the idea of Eddie Macleod who sadly ‘transferred to glory’ unexpectedly in November 2017. Starting off in church it moved to become a monthly event at Eddie’s and Marjorie’s home. A time of quiet worship followed by warm and friendly fellowship, including vast amounts of home baking. Over the years it has been a time of quiet reflection looking at the vast list of Celtic saints and the Celtic tradition. Sunday’s last service was not only the end of Celtic, but a celebration of the work put in by our much missed friend Eddie. The service ended as did the first service 15 years before with these words.
“May Christ be with us
Christ above us
Christ in us
Christ before us.
May the salvation O Lord
Be always Ours
This Night and for evermore
We are a fairly traditional Village Church but always open to new ways of reaching out through worship to our local communities and congregation. St Mary's mission is to make Jesus real in today’s life and part of this is to welcome our friends from the Indian Orthodox Church to worship with us. Our church, part of the Church of England, has a dedicated volunteer leadership team headed by the vicar. As well as giving support and guidance, St Mary's provides a sanctuary at the heart of Knutton.
"We want to discern what God is doing in His world and join in…serving our neighbours, community and wider world."
St Mary's is easily accessible with nearby carparks. The Church is in the centre of the Village of Knutton. Parking is available either on street or on the Community Centre Car Park across from the Church itself.
