The church was consecrated on 12th September 1138.
It houses the relics of Folkestone's Patron Saint, St Eanswythe, an Anglo-Saxon Kentish princess who established a nunnery on a site near the current church in around 650 AD, the one of the first religious communities for women in England. She died c 660 AD.
Her reliquary was moved to what is now the chancel of the present church on 12 September 1138.

RE-OPENING ST MARY & ST EANSWYTHE FOLKESTONE FOR WORSHIP
We have decided to delay opening St Mary & St Eanswythe Folkestone for worship services until Sunday 6 September, as long as we are not experiencing a second wave of Covid-19 at that time. The main reason is the age and health profile of our congregation, which affects both the heightened risk of infection and also the availability of volunteers to help run services.Services of daily Morning Prayer and Sunday Eucharist will continue to be published online. We will continue to open St Mary & St Eanswythe most days for individual prayer.This decision also affects private ceremonies, concerts and meetings.
