The Friends of St Marys

The Friends of St Mary’s Charlcombe actively provide support in many ways and also do a lot of fund-raising.  We recognise the part St Mary’s has in the life of the community.  Some of us do not worship regularly in the church but enjoy it being there and being a place of great stillness and solace.  Others of us, living locally, organise the opening rota so that the church can be available to anyone during the day.

We have a committee and plan our programme for the year.  This normally includes:

  • a barbecue in the summer
  • several illustrated talks
  • several craft stalls throughout the year

We also raise money for specific projects.  Examples of these are:

  • repairs to the organ
  • providing cushions for meditators
  • funding the new design for the Garden of Remembrance.
