The Parish Church of St. Mary
Alderbury and Whaddon

Part of the Clarendon Team of Churches


St. Mary’s Church:

First Sunday of the month:

The first Sunday of each month is Cafe Church held in the Village Hall. This starts at 4pm in the winter months and 6pm in the summer months. The style is very relaxed - and tea and cake is served before the service.

Second Sunday of the month:

The second Sunday of the month is Communion. Sunday Squad and Sunday Squad Plus meet after the first hymn.


Third Sunday of the month:

The third Sunday of the month is our Family Service. This is geared towards the youngest in the congregation, and is usually very hands on. Hymns and prayers are projected onto a screen at the front of the church, as are visual aids to help explain the message. We encourage all the youngsters in our various groups to come to this service.

Fourth Sunday of the month:

The fourth Sunday of the month is Holy Communion with the ministry of healing. During Communion there is the opportunity for the laying on of hands with a short set prayer, or an opportunity to meet with a pair of prayer ministers for specific prayer. Sunday Squad and Sunday Squad Plus meet after the first hymn.


Fifth Sunday of the month:

Where there is a fifth Sunday in the month, we join with the other churches in the Clarendon Team for worship (usually including Communion). The location of this service moves between the various churches, and starts a little later than our normal time - at 10.00am.

St. Mary’s Hall, Whaddon:

Every Wednesday:

A mid-week Communion Service is held each Wednesday morning at 10.00am.

Fourth Sunday of the month:

The fourth Sunday of the month is a joint service with the Roman Catholics. The location alternates between St. Mary’s Hall and the Roman Catholic chapel in Whaddon and starts at 6.30pm.


The Well
