St Thomas a Becket

St Thomas a Becket, Pucklechurch welcomes you to our historic parish church. There has been a worshipping community in our village for over 700 years.

We are an anglican church, part of the Church of England and currently offer regular Sunday worship at 10 am: Holy Communion and Morning Prayer, depending on the week.  There is now a regular Tuesday morning Morning Prayer service at 9.00 am. Everyone is welcome; local people, regulars and visitors.

We also offer baptisms, weddings and funerals, so do feel free to contact us. 

We have close relationships with our C of E church school. They visit us and we visit them regularly! 

The church building also hosts one of the two village playgroups, Tower Pre-School. 

There are regular social and fundraising events at times of major Christian festivals and we support a range of charities, including our local foodbank at Mangotsfield.
