                                               WELCOME TO ST MARY'S ASTON

We meet together to share our life journey with God, to become the people we are meant to be. We want to give thanks to God, know more of His love and serve our community.    


Brother, sister, let me serve you;
let me be as Christ to you;
pray that I may have the grace to
let you be my servant too.


We are pilgrims on a journey,
and companions on the road;
we are here to help each other
walk the mile and bear the load.


We welcome people of every age and stage of faith.  Join us at 11 am on Sunday and at other times as detailed in the Services and Events section of our website.  Our beautiful historic church is a special place to mark the important events of our lives: baptisms (christenings) thanksgivings, weddings, renewal of vows and funerals as well as sharing our hopes and fears with God in weekly worship.

We are part of the Diocese of St Albans, click under Pages and Links opposite for information and events. We share its vision of ‘Going deeper into God, Making new disciples and Transforming communities’.

What about children?

Children and young people are a valued part of our church and always welcome. On the 1st and 3rd Sundays children are part of our all age Family Service. Activities are provided in a special children’s corner, we have a kitchen and toilet.

The Parish has a small, highly successful Church of England School which is actively involved in church life through weekly collective worship, special services in church and visits.

Pause for prayer.

It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon,  for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.   Jesus called out with a loud voice, ‘Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.’ When he had said this, he breathed his last. Luke 23: 44-46.
