Facilities and features
One toilet, not fully disabled access - see separate note
The large car park is to the right as you drive up to church entrance, between the church wall and Church House. It is only open just before, just after and during services or events at the church.
The toilet has limited accessibility. There are handrails and a raised seat but it is not possible to position a wheelchair to the side of the toilet.
It is possible to park in a position giving level access to the church and churchyard but because it is the public highway, places cannot be reserved. It is VERY unusual NOT to be able to park in this area.
There is a shallow wooden ramp into the church which has a wide door.
Services are now being updated with large print versions
Are very welcome
The best way to describe these is to suggest that you 'Google Image' Padbury Stained Glass to see the wonderful windows that are at St Mary's, alongside Medieval wall paintings.
Normally open during daylight hours
See separate information
Music and Worship
There is a peal of 6 bells which are rung on the first, third and fourth Sundays of the month.
Lovely pipe organ used at all but the third Sunday of the month, Book of Common Prayer service
Third Sunday of the month at 9 am - simple said communion service with refreshments afterwards
Groups, Courses and Activities
There is usually a large, 1,000 piece jigsaw 'on the go' at the back of the church. Everyone is welcome to go and sit for a while and think and perhaps put some pieces in the puzzle. They usually take a few weeks to complete but as one is finished, another one will be started!

The church is normally open during daylight hours. The churchyard is always accessible and has a small but beautiful and peaceful Quiet Prayer Garden and plenty of seating. The views over the countryside are beautiful.
