Private Prayer


St. Mary’s is open for private prayer from 10 am to 4 pm every Sunday. 

Please keep to the designated seating area whilst in church.

St. Mary’s is in the process of becoming a ‘Festival Church’, which means that the church can remain open for both worship and community use.  

Being a Festival Church means that St. Mary’s will be able to serve you its community,

not only as a place of worship but also as a community centre by opening its doors

and being used respectfully, regularly, and creatively by the community of Drayton Beauchamp.


We are planning a minimum of six special Festival Services a year.
