Pear Tree Church - Southampton

Peartreebw Final Purple Logo


Pear Tree Church in the Ocean City of Southampton is the oldest Anglican Church anywhere in the world - being the first church built (1618) and consecrated (1620) after the Reformation. Nearly 400 years on Pear Tree Church still seeks to serve the people of Southampton.

As part of the worldwide family of Anglican churches, as part of the Diocese of Winchester and, locally, as part of Churches Together in Itchen, Pear Tree Church is a small but active part of the community.
