About Us

In the heart of town is the lovely Minster building which is home to the real church - the worshipping people and community of Axminster.

It is the base for a people who worship our wonderful God, and meet for prayer, study, music, fellowship and social activities, and a place for individuals to come for quiet, reflection and personal time with God.

We host a lunchtime concert every Thursday at 12.30 from May through to the end of October. 

The church has Norman origins, although much of the building dates from the 13th-15th centuries. St Mary's is Axminster's parish church and the oldest building in the town. St Mary's has been Grade II* Listed since 1950

The Minster Church of St Mary the Virgin is one of 8 local churches in the Axe Valley Mission Community
