St Mary & St Melor Church was founded in 979 A.D., and is now a vibrant congregation, with a special attention to children and young families.

Tonight our appeal project board met with its newest member, former Salisbury MP, Robert Key. We are now looking forward beyond the roof repairs to make our beautiful Abbey Church “Fit For The Future.”

Urgent repairs for our Church roof Amesburys oldest building is crumbling. The lead roof is no longer watertight. The five-hundred-year-old roof beams need replacing. The walls need re-sealing against the damp.

Another fundraising event happening this weekend. Car Boot Sale, BBQ, Bouncy Castle and much more. Hosted by our friends at The Amesbury Abbey Group.

Our lovely barrel vaulted ceiling in the south transept. Another headhunter exercise- can you see the demon eating a man and the man holding a two-headed chicken? The timber here is likely to date from the 16th century, but the current position of the heads (properly called corbels) and the ceiling plaster is Victorian.

St Mary & St Melor Church Amesbury have been urgently fundraising in attempts to raise money to fix their roof. It has been a year since members of the church first noticed the water damage to the roof of their liberal-catholic, 979AD dated church. The building needs £200,000 to fix the broken roof or else they could face closing down due to public health and safety hazards.

Spire FM

Parts of the church have been closed to the public for safety reasons.

Roof Update. Part of the Church has been cordoned off after the plaster started to fall. This brings home how urgent our need is now to raise the funds to replace the lead and make the roof waterproof and structurally sound. Please help us raise as much as possible here -

Our walking group, The Sociable strollers are out for their monthly outing. This week a 3 mile walk in Farley, ending at the The Hook and Glove at Farley for lunch. If you want to join in the future let us know #maryandmelor #walking #farley #publunch
