Welcome to St Mary's Overton

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.

Please see the details of how we are resuming services at St Mary's.

Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Sunday is usually characterized by a significant proportion of the village turning out to attend an act of remembrance at the war memorial, followed by two concurrent services in a packed church and church rooms… but 2020 is no ordinary year and, in the midst of a global pandemic it would be irresponsible to encourage people to gather in such numbers. However, we wanted to find a way to mark the occasion and show respect. So here's the plan:

We are continuing to support Andover Food Bank during this period of self-isolation. Their urgent needs can be found on their website and donated items can be left at the Overton Co-op.

If restricted movement is currently making food donations difficult, monetary donations are also welcome.

Your support at the present time is especially appreciated.

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. A regular flow of income into this fund will ensure the good state of repair and appearance of the grade II listed building.
