The Friends of St Mary's Newington
St Mary’s is the oldest building in the Parish and has, for nearly 1000 years, been an important focal point for the village. We hope that this will continue to be so for future generations.
this historic building needs to be kept in a good state of repair and it is an ongoing challenge to raise sufficient funds for this purpose.
If you live in the village and visit the Church on special occasions, Christenings, Weddings, Funerals, School services or at Christmas and Easter, we hope you would consider supporting the upkeep of this beautiful and historic building by becoming a Friend of St Mary’s.
The Friends raise funds specifically for the preservation of the building, whilst the day-to-day running costs of the Church remain the responsibility of the congregation.
If you would like to join The Friends, and help ensure that St Mary’s continues its long contribution to Village life, please consider joining The Friends. Annual membership costs just £10 per household.
Those in a position to give more would, of course, be very welcome to do so.
