St. Lawrence is a friendly, active and growing village parish church.

The church lies in the shadow of  Old Sarum, in the village of Stratford- Sub-Castle, on the edge of Salisbury.

We enjoy the richness of the church seasons and festivals, with a good balance of traditional and less formal services. Our ministry to families and children is growing.

During the year we have a programme of opportunities for learning and growing together and have regular times for prayer and reflection.

If you are not already a member of our congregation, we hope that you will come and sample the welcome that we offer.

With every blessing,

Tessa Mann

Minister at St. Lawrence
