  • St Mary's is an historic Church of England Parish Church in the Diocese of Bristol, South Gloucestershire. We are very much concerned with both the present and the future, and supported by a strong and committed congregation we are trying to move forwards while discerning God's will for us. Our aim is to provide stimulating and challenging worship, to assist each other to grow in faith in Christ, and to show his love in the parish and beyond.

    Church Opening Times are 9am until 4pm. All are welcome to visit for quiet prayer or reflection.

    From February's Meeting Point

    Lent: Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, 6th March. It’s a period of preparation for Easter, both for those who have ‘L Plates’ as church members and for those whose initiation was a long time ago. It can lead to Baptism or Renewal of Baptismal Vows at Easter. In all of the churches of North Severnside, each Sunday during Lent will focus on one of the six questions which a candidate for Adult Baptism has to answer. On Sunday 10th March we start by examining the question “Do you turn to Christ?”. All are always welcome, but this series offers a gentle introduction to what Christians believe and so is particularly suitable for those who otherwise may be hesitant to come to a church service. These questions will also be explored in the Lent Study Groups, which begin in the week of Monday 11th March. The Lent Leaflet will be available shortly.

    Quiz Night: Our next quiz is on Saturday February 16th 7.30pm. Tickets £5. A maximum of 6 per team. Please contact Debbie to book a team by emailing her (by clicking here).

    Fauré’s Requiem: Please come and sing Fauré’s Requiem with us in March. Practices will be 4pm – 5.30pm on 3rd, 10th 17th March at St. Mary’s Olveston. The concert will be on 24th March at 7.30 pm (venue to be arranged) with a rehearsal beforehand at 5pm. If this is the first time you have ever sung in a choir, we would love to help and support you. The only thing you need to do is buy the music, which is £5 from Amazon.
