St Mary's is a small Grade 1 listed building in Rushall village. The lower part of the round tower dates back to late Anglo-Saxon times and the earliest documentary evidence is in the Domesday Book 1086. The tower which was built onto the nave of the existing 13th century church was extended to house two bells in the 15th century, one bell having since been sold to fund restoration work. In the 17th and 18th centuries the church fell into disrepair and was fully restored in 1878, when the restoration of the chancel was funded by Emmanuel College, Cambridge. Today, the church is once again in need of some major repair work and we are currently raising funds for our nave roof, and Emmanuel College will be funding the church's chancel repairs.

Rushall Church has registered with A Rocha UK and started it's Eco Church journey, taking action and working through the process of becoming as eco-friendly as possible in order to protect God's creation, improve biodiversity, and address climate change.
