About us

The Friends of St Mary's Winkfield is a registered charity (number 1162342) set up to raise money for the conservation, embellishment and maintenance of St Mary's Church, Winkfield, a Grade II* listed building that has been here since the 13th century. Our aim is to ensure that this magnificent building remains in the best condition possible for us and for future generations, both locally and world-wide, to enjoy.

It enables people, whether they are local, national or international supporters, be they church-goers or not, to contribute to the future of this magnificent piece of English history.

All Friends of St Mary's Church will be kept informed of the Charity's activities by our website, through the Winkfield 'Parish Mag'(current and past editorial sections can be found by clicking on the link), and by occasional newsletters and other communications.


Becoming a friend

The membership of the Friends of St Mary's Winkfield is a group of mainly local people who have joined up by paying a subscription, and, in many cases, making additional donations and participating in and generally supporting fund-raising events. These funds are saved up to go towards projects on behalf of St Mary's church that further the published aims of the Friends of St Mary's Winkfield. You can find more by following the links above to other pages, particularly 'News & events' and 'Become a Friend'.


Where St Mary's fits in

St Mary's is the Parish Church of the parish of Winkfield and is one of three churches (much the oldest one) within the Parish of Winkfield, Cranbourne and Chavey Down. The other churches are St Martin's, Chavey Down and St Peter's, Cranbourne. The Parish has its own website, which can be accessed by pressing the 'Parish Website' button at the top of the page.

We, the Friends of St Mary's Winkfield, collaborate with the PCC to maintain the Church as a working and living amenity for the local community.

We strive to increase the funds available to the PCC in general, by raising money for the maintenance of St Mary's to support their registered objectives. Thus the finances of both the PCC and the Parish are enhanced by our activities.

In addition to services, weddings, funerals and civic occasions, St Mary's hosts concerts (e.g. the annual Christmas Concert) as does St Peter's. Popel's Hall nearby is also available for appropriate functions - and the White Hart Pub opposite the church provides hospitality of its own kind!
