St. Mary's Church, Bedstone, is in the centre of our small village. It is one of the 7 Parishes in the Middle Marches Benefice. Our priest in charge is Rev. Martin Quayle, who was licensed to our Benefice on 19th September in a part time capacity. He will be taking our regular Sunday Communion services, on the 3rd Sunday of the month. Our monthly Evening Prayer service will be lay-led.
The church dates back to Norman times and features an original Norman font, a timber framed bellcote and a shingled spire, and some of the houses in the village, which include several thatched cottages, are more than 600 years old.
We are now registered with the Parish Giving Scheme which enables supporters of St Mary's, Bedstone, to donate regularly, or as a one-off donation. www.parishgiving.org.uk Parish code 180618299
