The Parish Church of Lapworth is St Mary the Virgin (Church Lane, Lapworth, B94 5NX). It is a beautiful medieval building situated in the Warwickshire countryside. The church is interesting and attractive to visitors, who are warmly welcomed.

Details about our Grade 1 listed building can be found here.
Music forms an important part of the Sunday morning (11a.m. Services) and there is a strong choral and music tradition at St Mary’s. We have an able and regular choir, supported by our Scholar Organist. In addition, a team of self sufficient and enthusiastic bell ringers serve the church.
Our devoted and proficient Flower Guild provide outstanding floral decorations weekly in Church, as well as on special occasions, such as weddings.
Members of the congregation organise evening concerts and entertainment, often to assist good causes including Christian Aid and the Harvest Supper. Joint Parish walks are enjoyed throughout the year as well as regular parish lunches in the ‘Old School’. A summer outing has been popular in recent years. An annual Christmas Fair in late November is appreciated by the community. The men’s supper group (MOLES), of which the Rector is chairman, holds monthly meetings during the winter reaching out to the wider village society.
The Parish has a strong and active PCC and Finance Committee. Amongst their number are members holding professional qualifications who are able to ensure that the administration and financial affairs of the Council receive the full benefit of their professional skills and advice.
The Parish of Lapworth is closely associated with the Parish of Baddesley Clinton, four miles to the East. The Parish Church of Baddesley Clinton is St Michael’s. The two Parishes share one Rector. The Rectory is opposite St Mary’s Church on Church Lane.
