S. Mark’s is the parish church serving central Swindon. We’re at the heart of Swindon’s historic Railway Village, situated just opposite the GWR Park. The 10.30am Sung Mass is our main act of worship each week. We seek to glorify God through beautiful liturgy, enriched by excellent choral music. The choir is led by our Director of Music, Katrine Reimers.

All are very welcome at S. Mark’s, including children of all ages. We’ve recently launched a new Sunday school that meetings during the 10.30am Mass.

During the week, the church is normally open for worship every day; please see the Weekly Messenger for details of times. Our churchyard also provides a place of tranquillity in the heart of our busy town.

S. Mark’s, which was consecrated on 25 April 1845, is the oldest extant church in central Swindon. The church was built to serve the New Town which grew up to house the workers for Brunel’s railway works. The church was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, who later designed the Foreign Office and St Pancras Station. 175 years later, the church continues to serve the Railway Village and surrounding communities.

S. Saviour’s
Ashford Road,

Mass on Sundays at 9am
Mass on Tuesdays at 9.30am

S. Saviour’s is on Ashford Road, up towards Old Town. Our church has a very special character, having been built as a labour of love by the railwaymen on their one day off a week – this certainly contributes to the wonderful and prayerful atmosphere of the church today.

There is a strong and vibrant Sunday school at
S. Saviour’s that meets during the 9am Sunday Mass. We have a mixed congregation with all ages represented and with a warm, community atmosphere. The children’s and young people’s uniformed organizations are an important part of our church family, and join us for parade Masses several times a year.

Our hall is well used by the local community and
S. Saviour’s hosts regular coffee mornings to support local charities.

The late Sir John Betjeman, the former Poet Laureate wrote of S. Saviour’s: “I would sooner be on my knees within the wooden walls of S. Saviour’s than leaning elegantly forward in a cushioned pew in an Oxford college chapel – that is to say if I am to realise there is something beyond this world worth thinking about.”

S. Luke’s
Broad Street,

Mass on Sundays at 11am

Mass on Tuesdays 7.30am

Mass on Thursdays at 9.30am

Evening Prayer on Friday at 6pm

Mass on Friday at 7pm

Vigil Mass on Saturday, with readings and prayers in Konkani 6pm

S. Luke’s serves Broadgreen and the surrounding areas of Swindon. Our congregation reflects some of the diversity of our neighbourhood. In recent years, we’ve particularly been enriched by members of the Goan community – and, at the request of the community, we now have regular Masses partly in Konkani, the language of Goa.

Our main act of worship is a Sung Mass on Sundays at 11am, but we also have a midweek Mass on Thursday at 9.30am, which allows for a quieter space for reflection and prayer. On Sunday afternoons, the church is used by members of the local Eritrean Orthodox community.

S. Luke’s has been at the heart of the Broadgreen community for well over a century. Over the years,
S. Luke’s has served the local community in different ways – as the previous home of the Big Breakfast Plus and, for over two decades, of the Harbour Project, which serves people who are refugees or seeking asylum in Swindon. The Harbour Project has grown so much that it is about to move (only a few hundred yards away!) to the Broadgreen Community Centre. So we’ll be looking at new ways to use our halls for the community in the months ahead.

S. Aldhelm’s Church Centre,
Edgeware Road,

Mass on Mondays at 12 noon

Our chapel at S. Aldhelm’s is on Edgeware Road, in Swindon’s main shopping centre. It forms parts of our Parish Centre, along with the Rainbow Bookshop, our Parish Office and the S. Aldhelm’s Hall. The hall is the home of the town-centre distribution centre for the Swindon Food Collective, Swindon’s foodbank.

A Said Mass is celebrated at S. Aldhelm’s every Monday, and the chapel is open during the week for anyone in the town centre who wants a place for quiet prayer and reflection – just ask as the bookshop or the church office is you’d like to visit the chapel.
