Situated in the picturesque village of Hemington, St. Mary's is a beautiful English country church of substantial architectural interest. It was built by the Normans (potentially on the site of an earlier Saxon church), extended and altered around 1230, with further work 100 years later, and again in 1480-1500 when the tower was built. The porch is Victorian, the pews date from the early 1600s, and the tower has a peal of six bells: two hung when it was built.
Primarily serving the villages of Hemington and nearby Faulkland as part of the Hardington Vale Benefice, Holy Communion takes place on the second Sunday of each month at 9.00 am, and an ecumenical act of worship and prayer based on a Celtic liturgy is held every Wednesday morning at 9.15 am. Festivals are important at St Mary's, with major events to celebrate Christmas, Easter and Harvest; in addition, we come together to mark Remembrance Sunday and host concerts throughout the year. The well-maintained churchyard continues to be open for burials and this beautiful, Grade 1 listed venue is also very popular for weddings and christenings.
