Regular services

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” – Jesus

We meet for an hour or so every Sunday morning at Swainswick and occasionally on weekdays as well. Twice a month we celebrate holy communion. The other Sundays are services of singing, readings and prayers called Morning Praise and Morning Prayer. There are also Sunday services at St Saviour’s in Larkhall. So, between us there is plenty of variety.

Baptisms, Weddings & Funerals

Anyone who lives in the parish or has a close connection with it can be baptised, married or have their funeral in the church. The lower churchyard is closed, but burials still take place in the upper churchyard. We also have a Book of Remembrance where the names of people who have died can be inscribed. If you want to find out more, please email swainswickchurch@gmail.com, call one of the church wardens or contact Revd. Rob Densmore, the Rector of St Saviour’s.

Book of Remembrance

You will go out with joy
And be led forth with peace;

The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you,
And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
