• Welcome to Calne                         
    CALNE is a small town in the north of the Salisbury Diocese.  The Parish of Calne and Blackland is part of a caring Christian community in the town and welcomes new members and visitors.
    It is surrounded by beautiful countryside to the west of the Marlborough Downs.  Calne has a fascinating history; St Edmund was vicar of Calne when he was called to be Archbishop of Canterbury in 1234, Joseph Priestly, who was significant in the discovery of oxygen, lived in Calne, as did Jan Ingenhuz who discovered photosynthesis.

     

     Three Churches one Family

    St Mary’s Church dates from 12th century and was substantially updated in the Victorian era, it has a wonderful organ case designed by CR Ashbee and many other treasures.  St Peter’s Church is on the outskirts of town and is also very ancient dating from at least 13th century and once served a small farming community.  It is situated in an idyllic rural setting.  Holy Trinity Church is a Victorian building  set back from the main A4 and has a large churchyard which is managed to benefit wildlife.

    These three churches work together as a family and offer a varied range of opportunities for worship and fellowship. 
    We look forward to welcoming you in the future, St Mary's which is open for private prayer on Wednesday and Friday mornings and services will start again from 18th April.  Booking required via
