St Mary's is Weston Turville's Parish Church - mainly 13th and 14th century, with 15th century tower and roofs.

As well as an enthusiastic CHOIR, affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music, with members aged from 7 upwards, there are events for children every 2nd Sunday (FOOTSTEPPERS for 5-8 year olds, is a modern equivalent to Sunday School and takes place in the School Hall), and THIRD SUNDAY SPECIAL is a service for families with toddlers to ten year olds (in Church).  On Wednesday afternoons, children aged 8-11 join the EXPLORERS club in Church to explore Bible stories. 
 
JIGSAW, our annual Christian summer holiday activity week in July, invites all children of primary school age in Weston Turville to this event which takes place in the village school, and involves more than 100 adult and teenage helpers from the community.
On the first Tuesday of each month, residents of Oakmead House, provide coffee and other refreshments in the church from 11-12.

Our Rector is Revd David N Wales; the Assistant Priest and Director of Music is Revd Susan Fellows. David Blackmore is Licensed Lay Minister, and  Bill Spear is Deputy Organist. The Captain of Bells, Brian Robson, leads a team who ring a peal of six bells.

The parish and clergy of Weston Turville play an active part within the Wendover Deanery, and Oxford Diocese, and enjoy occasional links with St Frideswide's at Water Eaton, near Bletchley.

For details of our FUNdraising activities and SOUPER LOO LUNCHES, please follow the links.

A History of the Church of St Mary the Virgin was published in December 2010  - for details please follow the link above.
