About Us

St Mary's Uffington lies at the heart of the Vale of White Horse; and with its distinctive octagonal tower and imposing Early English architecture is sometimes called "the Cathedral of the Vale".

St.Mary’s Church exists to celebrate the love of God and to meet the spiritual needs of the whole village community.  All visitors, friends, children and those with special needs or disabilities are welcome to the church and not just for weddings, baptisms or the Christian festivals. 

All are welcome at any of our services.  Of particular interest may be the Benefice Communion in Uffington on the 2nd Sunday.  We run a special Family Service in Uffington or Woolstone on the 3rd Sunday, and in Shellingford on the 4th Sunday.  

The church is open in daylight hours for prayer and reflection.  It is accessible to wheelchair users and there is limited off-road parking for the disabled.  There is a sound loop system, a toilet and kitchenette.

Marriages:  St. Mary’s is a superb setting for a wedding,  In the past we have accommodated over 250 wedding guests in the church.

Baptisms: We look forward to welcoming babies, children and adults into the church through Baptism, and we value the commitment of parents and godparents to bring up children in the Christian faith.

Uffington Benefice comprises four parishes which along with Uffington itself includes Baulking, Shellingford and Woolstone.
