St Mary’s is a friendly and welcoming church family at the heart of the Sturminster Newton community.  From Little Acorns pre-school church to hosting school services to Holy Communion on Sundays, we have services and social events to suit everyone. Part of a benefice (or group) of Church of England parishes that also includes St Peter’s, Hinton St Mary and St Thomas a Becket, Lydlinch, we meet on Sundays and throughout the week and our Vicar, Philippa, can be seen around town most days!

Wednesdays: Holy communion at 10am

Reminders of service times are regularly posted on the St Mary’s Facebook page and on the noticeboards inside and outside the church and outside Holebrooks on teh Town Square.
