Welcome to Saint Lawrence's Church

  • Welcome to St. Lawrence…..

    St. Lawrence is a friendly, active and growing village parish church.

    The church lies in the shadow of Old Sarum, at the heart village of Stratford- Sub-Castle, on the edge of Salisbury.

    We enjoy the richness of the church seasons and festivals, with a good balance of traditional and less formal services. Our ministry to families and children is growing.

    During the year we have a programme of opportunities for learning and growing together and have regular times for prayer and reflection.

    Our monthly pattern of Sunday worship is as follows:

    1st Sunday      Parish Communion 10.00am

    2nd Sunday    Together in Worship 10.00am (All age service)

    3rd Sunday     Parish Communion 10.00am

                            Evensong 6.00pm (not in December)

    4th Sunday     Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer) 8.00am

                            Matins (Book of Common Prayer) 10.00am

                            Family Fellowship in the Reading Room 10.00am

    5th Sunday     Parish Communion 10.00am


    St Lawrence has recently joined the Small Pilgrim Places network.

    Small Pilgrim Places are Christian spaces which lend themselves to quiet prayer and reflection. St. Lawrence is open between the hours of 10.00am and 4.00pm for this purpose. There is a special pew with some prayer resources available.

    For more information, please visit the website https://www.smallpilgrimplaces.org

    If you are not already a member of our congregation, we hope that you will come and sample the welcome that we offer. If you need to contact us for any reason, please use the Contact Tab above.

    May God bless you and those you love, 


    Rev’d Sarah Wood-Roe
