Pear Tree Church - Southampton

Peartreebw Final Purple Logo PearTree 400 Website

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.

In guidance with the information provided by The Church of England all regular Church Services at Pear Tree and St Mark's Churches are being cancelled until further notice.

Unfortunately, this also applies to the Pear Tree 400 events that were planned but these will be postponed and rescheduled in the future. We will review the 400 events at the end of May.


Sadly due to the current pandemic we are unable to hold the annual Church Fete on the Green in July
