Steeped in history, St Mary’s today is home to a vibrant and living Christian community made up of all ages and backgrounds that seeks to serve God in the wider community of Lychpit and Old Basing by being hospitable, open and offering worship acceptable to God.
The church is kept open during the day all year round and provides an oasis of calm in a busy world. The nearby conservation area in the churchyard also provides a place for wildlife to flourish and people to use for quiet and reflection.
There are many ways in which faith can be explored, supported and nurtured here at St Mary’s. You are welcome and encouraged to participate in the life of the Church here.
To be married at St Mary’s you should be resident in Lychpit or Old Basing or, if not resident, regularly worshipping at St Mary’s. Enquires about weddings should be made through the Administrator. Details of fees for weddings are available on request.
Baptisms (christenings) happen at St Mary’s on designated Sundays throughout the year. Enquiries about baptism should be made through the Administrator.
Should you wish to see a priest about any matters at all, in strictest confidence, Fr Alec is available to listen and offer guidance where appropriate. This may involve the Sacrament of Reconciliation (confession) should you wish.
