Getting here

Saint Mary's was built in 1846, by Trawden people, for everyone in Trawden. Saint Mary's is here for all times in our lives, the happy events, and to be alongside us in our times of trouble.

Everyone in England lives in a Parish of the Church of England and has a right to the services and care of their Parish. Saint Mary's is the church for Trawden. People may have been married at Saint Mary's or had a child baptised here. Others may discover that earlier members of their family were associated with Saint Mary's. On the other hand some may have recently arrived in Trawden. In any event you will be very welcome.

Your Church in Trawden may be small in numbers, but we have got a lot to offer to the village.

Baptisms are particularly welcome, and there is no charge.  Please contact the Vicar, Rev John Knott, on 01282 869956 or [email protected], to arrange a date.  The same contact details apply for weddings and funerals.

The "Peace Garden" (between St. Mary's Vicarage and the Churchyard) offers a place for silent reflection. Have you visited yet ?

We share a vicar with two other local churches, and other local and retired clergy take some of the services for us.

The Parish Link with our friends in Süd-Asse (northern Germany) has in recent years brought dozens of families and individuals into contact. There probably is no better way to enjoy another country than through the warmth and hospitality that you find in personal contact.

Normal services are at 4.30pm on Sundays.  There are extra services at Christmas and Easter.

The 3rd Sunday in the month is normally a village service without communion but with crafty activities.  If you are thinking of coming to church for the first time this service is aimed at you.

The Church costs a lot to maintain in good repair and we receive no support outside of the Village.  Some villagers, who may not be regular church goers, kindly contribute to a fund dedicated to ensuring that the Church is still open in 100 years time.
