•     Welcome to Calne                         
    CALNE is a small town in the north of the Salisbury Diocese.
    Set in attractive countryside to the west of the Marlborough Downs.  

    The population is growing rapidly - much faster than the average for Wiltshire as a whole - and it is this factor which, more than any other, provides the parish with an exciting challenge. 

     Three Churches one Family
    We have three churches in our parish, Including the impressive Grade 1 listed St Mary's in the middle of Calne, the cosy Grade 2 listed St Peter's tucked away in Blackland and Holy Trinity in Quemeford.  We do many activities together and see    ourselves as one big family.
    We look forward to welcoming you in the future.

    Our 3 Churches offer a wide range of opportunities for worship and fellowship. The Eucharist (Holy Communion) is central: The Common Worship services(Modern Language) are used throughout the Parish, and the Book of Common Prayer is used regularly at St. Peter's.

    There are no events at present due to the corona virus pandemic

    Calne Food Bank is operating from Church House (30 Church Street) on a Tuesday and a Friday 12pm-4pm.

    From Monday 6th April the Food Bank will also be accessible in the Farmhouse Cafe (Phelps Parade) between 11am-3pm Monday’s and Wednesday’s.

    In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice. 

    Churches should be open where possible but with no public worship services taking place. Prayers can be said by clergy and ministers on behalf of everyone and churches should consider ways of sharing this with the wider community.

    Sunday 22nd March has been declared a National Day of Prayer by UK Church leaders.  We are all asked to light a candle in our windows at 7pm that day
