St Mary's Church in Leighton is in one of the twelve parishes in the benefice of Haughmond and Wrekin. The parish sits in rural Shropshire to the south of The Wrekin hill.

We offer a service in the church on most Sundays. Please check our Services/Events page for timings and occasional date changes.

On the second Saturday of each month, Patchwork Church meets in the Village Hall in Buildwas at 3.30pm. We also offer Messy Church, family friendly inter-generational worship, in other parishes in our benefice each Sunday. On the First Sunday in a month this is at High Ercall Village Hall. Rodington is the host church on the second Sunday in the village hall. Ellerdine Village Hall is the location on the third Sunday each month.
