Stafford St. Mary

The Collegiate Church of St Mary is a town centre church in Stafford.

It is part of

Our large and beautiful church has a long history, dating back to the legendary St. Bertelin in the 8th Century. The building which you see today was commenced almost exactly 800 years ago and it is the second oldest building in Stafford. The roof is about 500 years old. This church was one of the first churches restored by Gilbert Scott in the 19th Century. There are 10 bells in the tower, which can be rung as a peal.

We are situated in the town centre and within easy walking distance of several pay car parks. You are most welcome to any of our Sunday or weekday services or to visit during the week (11 AM to 1 PM most Wednesdays and Thursdays) when the church is kept open by volunteer stewards.

We are committed to safeguarding as an integral part of the life and ministry of the Church. We take our safeguarding responsibilities seriously, and have policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment.
