Welcome to St Andrew and St Mary Watton-at Stone

We meet together to share our life journey with God, to become the people we are meant to be. We want to give thanks to God, know more of His love and serve our community.     

 

Brother, sister, let me serve you;
let me be as Christ to you;
pray that I may have the grace to
let you be my servant too.

 

We are pilgrims on a journey,
and companions on the road;
we are here to help each other
walk the mile and bear the load.

 

We welcome people of every age and stage of faith.  Join us at 9 30am on Sunday and at other times as detailed in the Services and Events section of our website.  Our beautiful historic church is a special place to mark the important events of our lives: baptisms (christenings) thanksgivings, weddings, renewal of vows and funerals as well as sharing our hopes and fears with God in weekly worship.

We are part of the Diocese of St Albans, click under Pages and Links opposite for information and events. We share its vision of ‘Going deeper into God, Making new disciples and Transforming communities’.

What about children?

Children and young people are an essential part of our church. We run a Sunday Club during the 9.30am Communion service on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month with groups for pre-school and school age children. Please see the link (under News) or contact jonathanaves@hotmail.com.  On the 1st Sunday children are part of our all age Family Service. We have activity bags, a special children’s corner, kitchen and toilet. We have strong links with Watton and Heath Mount schools.
