Raising money towards the upkeep of our beautiful Grade One listed church, to safeguard it for generations to come.
Welcome to the Friends of St Mary’s Hawkesbury website.
Established over 30 years ago, the Friends of St Mary’s was set up by people who care deeply about the beauty and tranquillity of the church and its grounds and who recognised that supporting such a monument is beyond the means of normal parish activity. A Grade One listed building requires constant care and attention and our aim is to ensure that visitors and parishioners can appreciate St Mary’s for years to come.

Bishop Michael of Gloucester says
" I have many churches in my diocese but one of my favourites is St Mary’s.
This has been a place of prayer and contemplation for over a thousand years and you can feel it"
