Welcome to the website of St. Mary the Virgin, Bury, commonly known as Bury Parish Church.  

We are a Church of England parish, steeped in tradition. There has been a church on this site for over a thousand years and we now have this magnificent Grade I listed building in the centre of Bury.

We welcome everyone that wants to visit our church, whether for religious reasons, to explore its architecture or history (including its links with The Lancashire Fusiliers), to seek refreshment in The House On The Rock coffee shop, or browse in its book and gift shop area.

The church and The House On The Rock are open to visitors on the following days:

Monday and Wednesday to Saturday, 9:30am - 4:30pm. Both are closed on Tuesdays.

                                                                                                    Sunday services are at 8.00am.10.00am                                                                                                                           and 6.30pm.
