Our Church is a warm, friendly, community of people of all ages. 

During this unusual time we continue to provide spiritual support to the people in the villages of Wolston, Brandon and Bretford (St. Margaret's) and Church Lawford and Kings Newnham (St. Peter's).

We continue to pray and learn together online or in the church building on Sundays, and in smaller groups during the week where this can be done within the limitations of current restrictions.  

Please note whilst the new ‘Rule of Six’ does apply to any groups meeting in the church or church rooms, it does not apply to any church services, so thankfully these will continue to go ahead.

If you are on Facebook logo Facebook you can add St Mags Wolston as a friend. You can see events that are planned and what we've been up to recently.


Here is our latest newsletter with this week's news. It includes details of the Carriers of Hope shoe box project and a virtual Sunday school for children.

We are collecting for the foodbank, every week, before Tuesday. Paul from Coventry Foodbank in Willenhall would like to thank everyone from Wolston and Church Lawford for all our continued support. All food donations are still very much needed.  This week we were told "God works in mysterious ways. We were 10 trollies short of food that we ordered to come and were really struggling and then you came with all this food!" So thank you so much to everyone who continues to donate. Please keep donating as people living very close to us are in great need of food and basic essentials. Click here  to see a list of things that they are in urgent need of! Thank you again!

If you would like to contribute to the foodbank, please drop food around to the Vicarage, Brook Street, Wolston or 29 School Street in Church Lawford and we will be happy to take it from you!
