St Mary's church is here to be a witness to God's love for all people and to serve the community of Knutton. We are a worshiping community in the heart of the village and provide the setting for christenings and weddings, and also for your loved ones' funerals. We hope that as you come for these events, or join us in regular worship, you discover something of the love and grace of God, shown in Jesus Christ, which can give us purpose and hope, however challenging and difficult the world may be.
We are pleased to be able to open St Mary's church for private prayer from 21st June. The church will be open on:

Lord, you have taught us
that all our doings without love are nothing worth:
send your Holy Spirit
and pour into our hearts
that most excellent gift of love,
the true bond of peace and of all virtues,
without which whoever lives
is counted dead before you.
Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ’s sake,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
