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.
 
The clergy team is Revd David N Wales (Rector), Revd Susan Fellows (Assistant Priest and Director of Music), Revd Sue Smith (Curate), David Blackmore and Tony Eccleston (Licensed Lay Ministers). Bill Spear is Deputy Organist. The Captain of Bells, Brian Robson, leads a team who ring a peal of six bells.
 

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