Aylesbeare Parochial Church Council

Aylesbeare Parochial Church Council

St Mary's Church has been at the heart of Aylesbeare village life since about the C15th.  It is open every day and all are welcome to come and enjoy the peace of the building which reflects its role as a place of Christian prayer.

The Aylesbeare Parochial Church Council looks after the running of St Mary’s Church, including overseeing reparations and maintenance. The Committee includes the Chairman (rev Karen Spray) a Treasurer and Secretary, who work together with the laity to ensure the smooth running of the Church.

The PCC oversee financial matters including collections, donations and expenses.

Ongoing expenses at the moment are for repairing the west tower, of which some funding is provided by "The Friends of Aylesbeare Church".

Weddings, Christenings and funerals are held each year, a Christmas Carol Service and Easter Service are always very well attended, and there is an active bell ringer’s group and a shared choir from the surrounding parish, as well as a vibrant Sunday club which meets every 3rd Sunday, usually in the Village Hall.
