Welcome to the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin and St Mary Magdalen, Tetbury

There has been a Christian place of worship on the site of St Marys' since at least 681 AD. The present church was built following the demolition of the medieval church in 1777. The church today, with its elegant spire, is a focal point in the town. St Marys' is open every day for people to come and visit, sit quietly, or attend any of the regular services.

Please use the buttons on the left to have a look around and find out more about the church and the activities that take place here.

A Quiz for Christian Aid Week

Christian Aid Week this year will be like no other on record with no church; house to house; Tesco or street collections, so all in all, there will be a dramatic drop in the amount we send to Christian Aid by our Benefice during May. At the same time the need for resources to help fight this virus in the poorest countries of the world is right now.

With our inability to raise money by our usual methods this Christian Aid Week, Alison Hesketh our Christian Aid co-ordinator, has produced this quiz as a very small way to help. There are 250 questions in all which should keep you occupied for a while during the lockdown, and they are suitable for all abilities and ages. You can download the quiz here.

If you are able, please make a donation to Christian Aid, either through the Quiz Just Giving page, or send a cheque made payable to Christian Aid to the Parish Office.
