The Church, dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin, was greatly restored in 1969 and is probably well over a thousand years in origin.

Upleadon Church was beautifully decorated for Harvest Festival held on Sunday, 6th October when around 22 people attended the service conducted by Canon Roger Parker. Roger delighted us all with his ideas for congregation participation, it is not often that a combine harvester is seen in church! It was lovely to see so many for this annual service of thanksgiving and thank you to Roger and all who gave their time to make Harvest Festival an occasion. Harvest Lunch will follow in Upleadon Village Hall on Sunday, 20th October.
The Harvest Lunch for Upleadon Church took place on Sunday, 20th October in Upleadon Village Hall on a lovely sunny day. Guests Canon Roger Parker and Mrs. Parker attended and Roger kindly said Grace to start the meal. The hall was full with 64 people enjoying delicious hot casseroles, assorted puddings, cheese and biscuits and coffee, and a very successful raffle raising £148 was run by Mrs. Julie Bruton, thank you Julie you do a wonderful job. A very big thank you to all members of the PCC and others who kindly donated food and raffle prizes and all those who worked so hard serving food, clearing tables, washing up and generally supporting the occasion. It is a pleasure to see the fellowship of so many gathered together. Although the Harvest Lunch is not a fund raising event, because of the generosity of so many people the princely sum of £658 was raised for church funds.
