About Us

St Mary's has been serving the village community of Pirton for over 800 years and we can't wait to see what God has in store for us over the next year! 

You'll be sure of a warm welcome at St Mary's, whoever you are. Services take place every week on a Sunday at 11.00 with refreshments (decent coffee!) afterwards.  

Whether you would like to join us for worship or are thinking about having a special event such as a baptism or wedding here, we would be delighted to welcome you to any of our services or social occasions. 

History of St Marys: 

St Mary's is a Norman village Church which is unusual for its simplicity and lack of stained glass. This was the result of war-time doodle bug which shattered almost all the old glass. The village of Pirton is situated on slopes of the Chiltern Hills on a loop off the Icknield Way and is a popular starting point for walkers.

In October 2009 we completed the transformation of the South Transept which now provides an Upper Room with a wonderful view, and below it a kitchen, easy access toilet, and further meeting space. The organ has been moved to the West End of the nave and a new lighting scheme has been introduced.
