Our Services

Our Sunday Services:

Astbury St Mary’s has been a place of Christian worship for over 1000 years. We hope that you will feel welcome and that you are able to meet with God through our services. Unfortunately we are at the moment without a Rector so during the interregnum the service schedule will be as follows and the majority of the services will be lay led.

8.00 am

Morning Prayer. Book of Common Prayer.

11.00 am

Morning Prayer.

On the second Sunday of each month we have a Family Service and this is combined with the school children during term time. The children stay in church for the first part of the service, before going into the vestry for Junior Church. Tiddler Church for the under-twos is in the Lady Chapel, where their carers can still hear and feel part of the service. The first Sunday of each month is all-age worship when the children stay in for the whole service. There are also ‘Sunday Sacks’ available at the back of church which contain toys, puzzles and games for young children to play with in the pews. After the service you are warmly invited to stay for refreshments, which normally include home-made cakes and real coffee.

6.30 pm

Evensong, with Sung Eucharist on the second Sunday of each month. This is a traditional sung evening service with our robed choir leading the worship.

Again we have to warn you that any or all of these services are subject to change during the interregnum but we do hope that we will be able to maintain this schedule.

Toilet facilities may be found outside the main doors of the church, down the steps and round to the left.

Hearing Aids: We have a loop system installed – if you have a hearing aid then please switch to T.

 Wednesday 11.45 am

Holy communion or a short service is held in the Village Hall during term time followed by a light lunch. Everyone is welcome to join us.
