 St Mary's Church, which is part of the Diocese of Clifton,   exists to serve the parish of Chippenham and surrounding villages and to announce the gospel of the Lord to all who will hear it. The present church celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2011, having been opened in 1936. When it opened there were 35-40 attending Mass, and now there are three Sunday masses each week with around 150 attending each in 'normal' times - so judge for yourselves if St Mary's has a message worth hearing! In this COVID-19 crisis numbers are limited to 50 attending each Mass to allow for social distancing. 

If you are new to the town, or just visiting, contact us, come and worship with us. You will receive a warm welcome.
