St. Michael and All Angels Blewbury

The Parish Church of St Michael and All Angels in the centre of the picturesque village of Blewbury speaks powerfully of the faith of countless generations of Christians.  Historically there was a church on this site in Saxon times, as mentioned in the Doomsday Book.  That church was rebuilt by the Normans towards the end of the 11th century and consisted of a Nave and Sanctuary.  The Chancel, north and south aisles, tower, Lady Chapel and porches were added gradually between the late 11th century and 1600.  We worship in a building that holds memories of those who have lived and worshipped here before us.  We sell postcards and a leaflet explaining our lovely Chancel stained glass window.

Even today, St Michael’s Church is the centre-point for the village population for baptisms, marriages, funerals, Christmas and Easter celebrations, concerts, exhibitions and Teas.  We have a Choir,  Bellringers, an All Age Service team and a thriving PCC. Regular choir practices are on Monday evenings at 6.45 pm either in the Benefice Centre or in church itself. Regular Bellringing practices are on Friday evenings at 8pm. If you are interested in either (or both!) of these, please contact Elaine in the office who will put you in touch with the relevant people.

The church is surrounded by a closed churchyard cemetery which is now part of a wildflower Living Churchyard Project.   The Church is open every day from around 9am until about 4pm in the winter months and 5pm during the lighter months.  If you wish to visit the church outside these hours, please contact the Benefice Office.
