About Us and How to Make Contact

 
St. Mary's Church stands as a witness to nearly two thousand years of Christian worship and ministry in the north-west corner of Surrey where the river Thames has formed the county boundary from the Middle Ages onwards. As a parish church, it is engaged in pastoral work within the village and wider community, including a new counselling service and plans for the development of a youth and community foundation to restore those social and recreational facilities which have not been available locally in recent years.
