Welcome to St Mary's

The Nave of St Mary's, Warwick

St Mary’s Church is an historic landmark, tourist attraction and busy parish church which is set in the ancient town of Warwick. People have worshipped on this site for over 1,000 years and our present building is one of the largest and most interesting churches in Britain. We are open every day of the year (apart from Good Friday and Christmas Day) and welcome a large number of visitors from across the world.

We offer a wide range of services from those involving our choirs to others that are quiet and reflective.  Visitors can discover more about those on this website. St Mary’s aims to be an inclusive church, so it’s used by the local community to celebrate baptisms, weddings and funerals as well as significant national events and we welcome people in for concerts, exhibitions and recordings for television and radio as well as the weekly round of worship.

I do hope that you will be able to visit us to explore our Norman foundations in the crypt, look at the Beauchamp Chantry (the finest medieval chapel in England) or gaze from the tower with stunning views over Warwick Castle and the surrounding town. Feel free to take time to pray and be still in this place hallowed over centuries of prayer, or join in any of our regular acts of worship.

One of our pressing challenges at the moment is to raise the funds to restore and maintain this wonderful building. Our Capital Campaign has already raised £1m and is seeking to raise a further £1.4m. We are enormously grateful to all who have contributed so far. If you would like to help, please visit our fundraising section or look out for fundraising events posted here and in our weekly newsletter available from the News & Magazine page.

Join with us in handing this architectural and spiritual gem onto succeeding generations.
