All Saints’ Church, Ham

All Saints’ Church in Ham is Grade 1 listed and dates back to the 12th century. There are services at least 3 times a month.

Services are shared once a month with Shalbourne who also run the joint Children’s Group before their monthly Family Service. Attendance ranges from 12 to 20 children including about half a dozen from Ham.

There is a joint Ham/Shalbourne choir who sing about once a month in either church.

St James the Great in Buttermere is Grade 2 listed and is the highest church in Wiltshire and probably one of the smallest. Buttermere has no electricity so, apart from the candlelit Christmas Eve Crib service, seven other services are held there from Spring to Autumn when Ham parishioners join them.


The PCC meets periodically and consists of 11 members including 2 from our sister church of St James, Buttermere.
