Welcome to St Andrew & St Mary, Watton-At-Stone.

Who we are

We are a friendly Anglican congregation meeting at 9.30 am every Sunday and at other times as detailed in the Services and Events section of this website.  Our beautiful and historic church is set on a hillside overlooking the village of Watton, a special place to mark the important events of our lives: baptisms, thanksgivings for the birth of a child, weddings, renewal of vows and funerals as well as sharing our hopes and fears with God in worship.

We are part of the Diocese of St Albans, see link opposite for Diocesan information and events.

What we do

We welcome people of all ages to our services - children and young people are an essential part of our church and we offer activities just for them through our Sunday School and Teddy Bear Club. 

People share in the work of the church as readers, prayer leaders, home visitors, flower arrangers, bell ringers, cleaners and through regular maintenance of the church and churchyard. People also help in organising our special events. Church and village events are reported in the free monthly Parish News.

If you would like us to pray for you or someone you know please contact Rev Jenny Gray.
