St Mary's Church, Stowe.

Welcome to Stowe Parish Church's Home page

Stowe Parish Church, often called simply "St Mary's", is situated on the beautiful, world-famous Stowe Gardens Estate, Buckinghamshire, England. The church building is more than 800 years old but we're not a museum! We are an active, parish church serving the surrounding area. We aim to be a warm, welcoming church serving our parishioners and all who come to us including visitors to the National Trust estate.  

The Church Wardens have agreed to take part in a Congregational Survey from the Archbishop’s Council. This will take place at the morning service on 26th October. Each person is asked to complete a short questionnaire which takes about 2-3 mins to complete. Anyone not at the service can complete it on-line at

Following the retirement of the Revd Ron Bundock the SMT Stowe Ministry Team and Church Wardens have produced a Parish Profile and Job Description.

Our ministry is rooted firmly in the Christian Gospel that Jesus came to bring. We believe this message of God's love and life for everyone is something to share and live out with everyone around us. In the rapidly changing, demanding world of the 21st century we believe that people are hungry to find spiritual values which provide a firm foundation for their lives and for their children.

Through the message of Jesus we want to make a difference in ways that are real and relevant to the local community and the world around us. We take seriously the call to serve in the world in which we live, the importance of caring for one another and to offer ways in which we can experience the love of God and His purpose for each of our lives.

People come to us for many reasons: to worship God, to explore the Christian faith, to seek answers to serious questions about life, or in a time of need. Some come to get married, to have their children baptised, to make friends or as passing visitors to the estate. Whatever your reason, we look forward to meeting you.

Note: Stowe School has its own School Chapel and chaplain. Stowe Parish Church is a separate community and building, just a few hundred metres away.
