Our beautiful, historic town of Wallingford, in Oxfordshire, on the Thames between Reading and Oxford. St Mary’s, in Wallingford Market Place, is open all day to visitors, for coffee in the mornings on Monday, Friday and Saturday from 10am until midday, and is available for hire. St. Leonard’s Church is a few minutes walk away, by the Thames Path, where you can also enjoy our churchyard. For more on our history see our buildings. Our rector, Revd. David Rice, is aided by a number of lay preachers, ministers and childrens workers, as well as the organist, music director, churchwardens and members of the PCC. Read more about our people here.
The PCC and especially our treasurer take care of our accounts and finances, which pay for our Parish Share, other operating costs of the churches and contributions to charities we support. We are a not for profit organisation so we benefit from gift aid that supplements regular donations.
The map below will help you find us. St. Mary’s, in the town centre, is fully wheelchair accessable. St. Leonard’s is on St Leonard’s Lane. The many car parks in town are mostly free on Sundays. The Wood Street car park, roughly between the 2 churches, has public toilets (especially handy if you’re visiting St. Leonard’s!). Thames Travel buses (based in Wallingford) will bring you here from Reading, Oxford or Henley or from the main line station at Didcot.
