St Mary the Virgin


Henbury parish is the largest in the Bristol diocese and includes the districts of Henbury, Brentry and Hallen as well as the Blaise Castle estate and the Mall shopping centre at Cribbs Causeway.

On the outside, St Mary’s looks like a typical picture postcard parish church. On the inside you will find that we have removed some of the pews to create a platform and a more welcoming entrance. Our worship is enhanced by our lively Director of Music, James, and our singing group.

We would be delighted to welcome you to our main Sunday service which is:

10 am Family Communion

During term-time, our Junior Church led by our Children and Youth worker Lucie Hudson meet in the village hall (a large building adjacent to the church rented from a charitable trust) during the 10 a.m. service, joining the rest of the congregation in the church building for communion and the last song. We also have a children’s corner in church for younger children who wish to stay with their parents. See Lucie's article for fuller details.

After the 10 a.m. service people gather in the village hall for coffee, biscuits and fellowship. Sometimes we have Sunday lunches, either ‘bring and share’ or provided by our Mother’s Union. We organise regular social events such as outings to the theatre and day trips.

Do come and join us and we look forward to meeting you.
