St Mary’s, Snibston is a delightful little church in which the prayers of many years give an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. You will find it off the beaten track along St Mary’s lane next to Grange Farm . Now kept open in daylight hours as a place of quiet for prayer and reflection and visitors are welcome at any time. There are two services held here each month, one early morning service of Holy Communion and one evensong. Both give a great opportunity to experience the sense of God’s presence in this very special place, and although it is small, St Mary’s is still also used for weddings and baptisms today. 

 

St Mary’s is a beautiful, old church set in fields in the middle of the Leicestershire countryside. It dates to medieval times and is one of the smallest churches in the country still having regular worship. Recently a paschal candle was placed in St Mary’s as a tribute to its sister church St James’ Snibston, which was closed in 2007 The candle stand was carved from the former altar of St James’ Church. Also inside is a list of all the priests who have served what was then the parish of Snibston, dating back to the times of the Normans. Over the years it has changed, being repaired and altered. (See artist’s impression of what it may have once looked like in the picture gallery.) 

 

St Mary’s is one of three churches in our parish (see links to the other two on the side of the page.) The rector is Rev’d Olwen Woolcock and the curate is Rev’d Pauline Ashby. Olwen can be contacted using the information found on the ‘contact us’ tab.
