St Mary’s church is situated in the north-east of Bristol at the upper end of Fishponds. St Mary’s church is nestled within its own pretty churchyard and is adjacent to a small recreation area. St Mary’s was completed in its present form by the end of 1869 and is still serving its community more than 130 years later.

East Bristol Partnership

St. Mary’s Fishponds is a member of the East Bristol Partnership. We are a group of seven Anglican churches who are seeking to build communities of wholeness with Christ at the centre.   We are all from within the Diocese of Bristol.
