The Parish Church of Sarum St. Martin Affiliations

Church Union

Church Union - upholding catholic doctrine, worship, order and discipline of the Church of England.

Forward in Faith

Forward in Faith - The PCC in July 2016 passed the new Resolution required of parishes that cannot in good conscience accept the sacramental ministries of female bishops and priests.  As a result of this the Bishop of Salisbury has placed us under the episcopal sacramental oversight of the Bishop of Ebbsfleet.

The Society

The Society - is an ecclesial body, led by a Council of Bishops.

The purposes of the Society are:

to promote and maintain catholic teaching and practice within the Church of England

to provide episcopal oversight to which churches, institutions and individuals will freely submit themselves

to guarantee a ministry in the historic apostolic succession in which they can have confidence

The parishes of The Society enjoy a relationship of full communion not only with the relevant bishop of The Society but also with all the other parishes of The Society.

Churches Together in Salisbury

Churches Together in Salisbury - sharing in local ecumenical work and worship.

St. Martin’s together with the RC and Free Church Assemblies of God in the Friary successfully organized a Sunday Lunch for a Friary residents’ celebration to mark the Queen’s Jubilee. A good time was had by all.

Church of England

Deanery Synod – we have three parish representatives who regularly attend the DS meetings and report back to the PCC.

The Diocese of Salisbury

The Diocese of Salisbury extends over 2,046 square miles, covering most of Dorset, two-thirds of Wiltshire, a few parishes in Hampshire and one parish in Devon. Its population of 848,000 gives a population density of just 414 people per square mile. (This compares with 515 per square mile in the Diocese of Bath and Wells and 985 per square mile in the Diocese of Winchester.) These figures reflect a diocese that is mainly rural with many small villages and a few areas of urban development. There are 4 Archdeaconries, 19 Deaneries, 170 Benefices and 453 Parishes.

Sarum St Martin

Salisbury Deanery

Salisbury Deanery includes the parishes of the city as well as the villages of Laverstock in the east, Stratford Sub Castle in the north and the town of Wilton in the west. The Clergy Chapter includes our colleagues at Church House and at the Cathedral. In addition to full Chapter, the Incumbents of the Deanery meet regularly and despite representing most of the traditions of the Anglican family, enjoy very strong relationships of friendship, trust and mutual support.

The Additional Curates Society

The Additional Curates Society

For over 170 years the Additional Curates Society has faithfully served the church and supports some of the poorest and populous parishes. Their strap line is "Passionate about Priesthood" and as an organisation they are 100% committed to doing every thing they possibly can to both pray for and pay for priests.

Here I am

Here I am

‘Here I Am’, see their role in terms of nurturing, and supporting individuals that are struggling with the possibility that God may be calling them.


Almighty God, you have made us members of Christ and of his Church in this parish. May we as a congregation reach upwards to your throne in worship and adoration: inwards to one another in understanding and fellowship; and outwards to the world in evangelism and social compassion. Make us like a city set on a hill whose light cannot be hidden, so that men and women may find Christ as the Light of the World, and his Church as the family of the redeemed, and eternal life as the gift of God, through Jesus Christ our Lord Amen.
