About Us

We are a friendly festival church, hosting around 6 or 7 services a year in addition to weddings and baptisms. Our services attract Monnington locals, those connected to Monnington families and others across the benefice. We often meet together after our services for a generous tea. The church is held in high affection by Monnington villagers and is visited frequently by walkers passing along the Wye Valley walk. The church is set next to a picturesque lake and the gardens of Monnington Court, and has historical links with the reknowned 19th century clergyman and diarist Francis Kilvert. 

St Mary's comprises a 15th century west tower, which has very large battlements with cruciform arrow slits. The rest of the church was rebuilt for Uvedale Tomkyns in 1679 and consists of, chancel nave and north porch, all of which are complete in structure and furnishings.
