Welcome to the St Mary the Virgin, Astley, website.

St Mary’s church, a Grade 2* Listed Building, is one of four churches in the Benefice which includes the parishes of Hadnall, Clive and Grinshill.  Services, both traditional and contemporary, are held on most Sundays throughout the year, during the main church festivals and on certain saints’ days.  The church is open for visitors during the summer months and we welcome new faces at any of our services.  This website was commissioned by the Heritage Lottery Fund to mark the refurbishment, and re-hanging in 2012, of the 750-year-old bell.   Please take time to browse through our site via the menu items above.
