Welcome to The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church, North Marston.

St Mary’s Church is a beautiful Church in the lovely north Buckinghamshire village of North Marston. It stands on the hill overlooking the village, and can clearly be seen from the surrounding area. With its significant historical background, this is a church of today, with a vibrant community and outreach programme. Many people pass through its doors each year, be it on a church pilgrimage, or to worship and celebrate in the inclusive and open Christian church.

We are an Open and Inclusive Church, which means that -

We believe in inclusive Church - church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in a Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.

As a genuinely Inclusive Church we extend a warm welcome to everyone, and celebrate their wonderful diversity. We look forward to meeting you!
