St Mary's

bringing more of God
to more of our lives

facebook image


We are a lively Anglican church for the whole village of Overton.
The church is made up of people at all stages on the faith journey and all ages and backgrounds.

There are good facilities for children and young people to enjoy their own activities. We make good use of our modern Church Rooms with midweek groups running for children and the local community.

Our main Sunday service is at 10:30 am. Weekly home groups are the backbone of the church where people meet to encourage and support each other and grow in our faith in Jesus Christ.

From Ian and Sue

Many, many thanks to all who worked so hard to make the send-off retirement party last Saturday such a fun and special occasion. A lot of work went in to it. And huge thanks to all who came to our last services on the Sunday. Thanks also for all the many cards and for all the gifts. We are overwhelmed with all these expressions of thanks and love. We feel extremely blessed to have spent the last 10 years at St Mary's Overton and Laverstoke. You will continue to be in our prayers individually and as churches for years to come.

God bless you all.

Heart for OvertonHeart for Overton logo

St Mary's have started a new initiative in the village called 'Heart for Overton'. We aim to provide information about all the caring/support groups available in our village by means of a directory, a website, and a FacebookFacebook page.

Please contact our team by email if you would like your group to be part of this or if you have any suggestions.

The weekly drop-in at the Library is now running every Tuesday from 11.00 am. Feel free to pop in for a coffee and chat.

Overton Church Heritage Fund

Thank you so much to those who have donated towards this fund and to those who have signed up to give regularly. The initial response means that we are now in a position to repair and renovate the clock, hopefully before the icy weather of the winter. A regular flow of income into this fund will ensure the good state of repair and appearance of the grade II* listed building. If you haven’t already signed up to give an amount regularly please contact David Rees at by email and he will give you a simple pack and a form to fill in.

Evening Praise - Are You Hungry?

Evening Praise is now simply called ‘HUNGRY’. It’s for those who are hungry for more of God in our lives, more of God in our worship. And it’s for those who are hungry to know more of God through teaching. The aim is informal but uplifting worship, teaching, prayer and praise.
