At the Parish Church in Royston we gather to worship God, encourage one another and pray for our community. You are very welcome to come and join us on Sundays or during the week. We are a Church of England church in the catholic Anglican tradition. Our celebrations are focussed around the Mass (also known as the Eucharist or Holy Communion) where we remember Christ's presence with us and his grace in transforming his people into his likeness. The beautiful medieval building was built by the monks of Monk Bretton Priory. It has a fine tower with a unique Oriel Window and many attractve features.
