St Mary's Kintbury with Avington

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to everyone who has recently moved into our friendly village. If you are a regular churchgoer or an occasional visitor please come along, and join us at our beautiful church, situated in the centre of the village. 

We hold regular weekly services, two 8am Book of Common Prayer Communion Services on the first and third Sunday of the month. These use formal language, last approximately 30 mins, and include a short reflection. There are two Sung Common Worship Holy Communions services at 9.45 am on the second and third Sundays of the month. They last approximately 1hr and 15mins with a children's corner with activities available.  A more informal service happens on the first Sunday of every month which lasts approximately 45mins. There are also the occasional Mattins or Evening prayer services plus special services such as 'Pimms and Hymns' advertised throughout the year. 

You can always be sure of a warm welcome.
