ST MARY’S CHURCH
St Mary’s is the Parish Church near the centre of Liss, Hampshire. In normal times we offer a range of different worship opportunities from All-Age services and ‘Messy Church’ to BCP Holy Communion and Evensong. Of course, we are not in ‘normal times’ and we, along with the rest of the world, have had to adjust to the challenges of the pandemic. Details of our online services are below but whether we are online or ‘in the flesh’, we endeavour to provide a warm and inclusive welcome to everyone. If you are interested in knowing more about us and what we do in more normal times, details of services and activities can be found on this site. Please do contact us if you want further information.
