St. Mary's, Yatton


The ancient church of St Mary the virgin, with its unique truncated Spire, has been a landmark for nearly 800 years. The church is usually kept open from 10am till 4pm from Thursday to Sunday each week (except bank holidays) and seeks to be a place of quiet, prayer, worship and welcome for the community of Yatton. The church has strong and growing links with Yatton Schools and because of its size is able to accommodate school services. It is also used an an educational resource for both schools in the Team.

Attendance at the 10am Sunday morning parish communion is about 70. The worship at this service is traditional with a strong musical tradition and choir. There is also a small Sunday School. A Music Leader has recently been appointed. Messy Church activities are organised jointly with Yatton Methodist Church.

Morning Prayer is available via Zoom at 8.30am on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Other services: as advertised.

Adjoining the church is the Chapter House, built in the 1970's, in which St Mary's Pre- School meet during term-time - Monday to Friday mornings. On other occasions it is used by church groups, including the Mothers' Union, and for other community groups/activities. The monthly coffee morning, on the last Saturday of each month, is run by members of the congregation and is a significant point of contact with the local community.

The Team Office is also in the Chapter House entrance-way and is the first point of contact for many enquiries about services and other activities.
