    Coronavirus Update
    We are sorry but in the light of Hampshire being in Tier 4 and the increasing rate of covid infection throughout the land St Mary the Virgin Church is closed and will remain closed until further notice. There will be no services, except for funerals.

    We appreciate that this situation will be disappointing to many people but in the current situation it is felt that even if some of us as individuals may be willing to take risks we should keep safe for the sake of others and the NHS. For information see Coronavirus restrictions.

    The lnk to our Zoom Service is announced in the Church and Parish news mailings. The team at St Mary’s Silchester would like to share Church and Parish news with our friends in Silchester and beyond and invite you to  Click here to add your name to the mailing list.  The Parish Magazine is available online.
