Welcome to the website of St Mary's, Buttsbury, Essex. We are a traditional country church that in one way is unique. Unlike most village churches St Mary's does not have a village as Buttsbury has long since vanished. The church can be found in open countryside between Ingatestone and Stock. The earliest part of the church is 12th Century. Do please visit.

The Benefice service on the 5th Sunday of the month is either at St Margarets Margaretting, St Marys Buttsbury or St Giles Mountnessing.
