Welcome to St Mary's Claverton 

St Mary's Claverton is a small, friendly village church linked with St Nicholas, Bathampton, being in the same benefice.

We are a Church of England church and offer a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us, of any Christian denomination or none. Above all we seek to be a community that knows and loves Jesus and shares his love with those around us.

You are most welcome to look around the church or use it for a few quiet moments. You will find it open most days. If you are making a special trip then contact the church office just in case!

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those thinking of visiting us, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

St Nicholas’ meets at the parish church by the canal bridge for our Sunday Service starting at 10:45am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to get parked and find somewhere to sit before the service begins.

Plan your journey: 

Open Google Maps

Parking: You can park (free) for up to 3 hours at the George pub next to the church. If you're not visiting the pub, it is courteous to use the right-hand side of the car park.

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is a disabled toilet available.

Our Service

The main service begins at 10:45 am. We are currently meeting on YouTube and we'd love you to join us. The service lasts around an hour and our aim is to hear God speaking through the Bible, understand what it means for our lives and encourage one another. We sing a mix of traditional hymns and modern songs, pray and often have a few minutes to hear from a member of the congregation about their faith, or get an update from one of our mission partners. The first 15-20 minutes are aimed at all ages, including children. For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the Youth and Children's Ministry page.

Prior to March 2020, we also held services on some weeks at 8:00 am and 6:30 pm on Sundays, and on Thursdays. These will be reviewed when Government restrictions allow churches to operate normally again.

Getting Connected


Home Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have two groups that meet on Zoom on Tuesday or Wednesday. Check out Home Groups to find out more, or we can put you in touch with a home group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
