Latest news: We are reopen for worship at St Mary’s, albeit on a limited scale. The next public worship at St Mary’s is Holy Communion on Sunday 16th August at 10am. There is also Holy Communion at 8am on that day at our sister church, All Saints. See https://www.allsaintsfishponds.co.uk/ for details. We are also open for private prayer on Thursday morning (10am – 12pm) and Sunday evening (5pm – 7pm)

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 nearly 150 years later. More of our church’s history can be found at the hookies videos.

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.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, St Mary’s currently closed.
