St Mary's, Upchurch
St Mary’s Church is at the heart of the village of Upchurch. There is a service every Sunday, usually a communion service supported by the choir. A strong musical tradition has long been a feature of our regular worship and of the village as a whole.
Upchurch is also home to Uplift, a thriving informal worshipping community which meets in the Village Hall behind the church. Uplift meets twice a month on the first and third Sundays and is particularly suitable for families with children and for people looking for a contemporary style of worship.
The church has a quiet chapel space for private prayer, with simple resources to help you pray. Information about where to obtain a key is available on the church noticeboard.
Our services normally follow this pattern through the month
10:30 Uplift (in the Village Hall)
2nd Sunday 9:00 Sung Communion
3rd Sunday 10:30 Uplift (In the Village Hall)
4th Sunday 9:00 Sung Communion
5th Sunday (to be announced - various special services around the benefice)
