Church of England Diocese of Chichester Ringmer

About Us

St Mary's is a village church in the large village of Ringmer with a typical congregation at the principal service on Sunday of about 50. The fabric of the building includes medieval work, two Tudor chapels, a 19th century bell tower and an attractive late 20th century church room. The church is close to the large village green where cricket is played in the summer.

There is a regular choir at the principal Sunday service and at Evensong accompanied by a fine 3-manual organ. Music  ranges from occasional plainsong to familiar modern songs. There is a MU branch, a regular Friday Club for children of primary school age and a youth group. The tower has a dedicated, friendly band of ringers on its 14cwt Eight.

We are an active church community: very sociable, very prayerful and with many opportunities to encourage and nurture a deeper understanding of your Christian faith.
