The parish of Hilmarton consists of two villages, Hilmarton and Goatacre, and nine hamlets and approximately 300 household.

The parish church of St Laurence is a grade 1 listed C13th church in the centre of the village. Services are usually held on 3 Sundays a month with an afternoon midweek service once a month. The church has a new Community Corner with toilet and kitchen facilities so it can also be used for non-worship events. Regular village events are also held in the church hall. There is an active choir and bell ringing team. We are lucky to be able to call on a number of organists for our services.
