St Mary's Church Blandford St Mary

The Parish of Blandford St Mary lies south of the larger town of Blandford Forum on the banks of the River Stour. St Mary’s Church is situated in Lower Blandford St Mary, DT11 9ND. The Church was built in the Early English Style and dates from the 14th century. It was later rebuilt and enlarged in Georgian Gothic style. The stained glass windows are a very special feature along with some interesting memorials. Our churchyard overlooks the meadows to the River Stour and provides a peaceful and tranquil place to sit and reflect.

Now part of the Two Rivers Benefice, this lovely church offers a variety of services and festivals and would love to welcome you. The Church has links with the local Primary school and hosts children’s harvest and Christmas celebrations open to all.

You can always be sure of a warm welcome at St Mary’s, at a Sunday service or at our busy ‘Coffee, Cake and Community Chat’ one Thursday each month.
We look forward to meeting you.
