St. Mary the Virgin serves the large village of Upavon. There is a shop, hairdresser, and two public houses within the village, serving the local agricultural community as well as those who commute and in some surrounding military establishments. About 50 new houses have been built in the village in the last 2 years.
St Mary’s has a small regular congregation of 12- 15. There are usually two Holy Communion services a month, one BCP and one more modern service. Of the other services each month, one is priest-led and the other lay-led. Morning Prayer is said every Tuesday morning.
There is a thriving baby and toddler group and a keen group of bellringers who ring and practise regularly.
St Mary’s also works closely with neighbouring churches at St Matthew’s Rushall and St. Peter’s Charlton St Peter.
