The Parish Church of Sarum St. Martin - The Parish

The parish occupies the south east of the city, and includes about one third of the historic centre - the other thirds being the Cathedral itself, and the parish of St Thomas with St Edmund. The parish today is a mixture of old city, urban priority, comfortable suburb and water meadows. Click here to find us.
There has been a place of worship on the site for well over 1000 years. The chancel of the present church antedates the Cathedral by about 50 years; the nave was arcaded in the 15th century and the north and south aisles added. It is spacious, light and generally in good repair.

A re-ordering of the Sanctuary in 2006 included a new award-winning altar.

More recently in 2011 the front porch and North entrance was beautifully re-ordered to include a glass domed roof with parish office rooms and toilet facilities.

Church Owned Properties

Houses - The parish owns two houses within the parish which are rented out to tenants.

Parish Office - recently moved back into the newly re-ordered front porch which also offers wheel chair access to toilets and baby changing facility.

St Martin’s Centre - The old Infant school building has been converted into the church centre with meeting rooms, a medium size meeting room, a well fitted out modern kitchen and two halls size 48 sq. m (can easily converted to one large hall  of  96 sq.m) and separate toilet areas for ladies and gents,  the entrance hall has access to the disabled toilet.

St Martin’s Centre


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.
