Church of England Diocese of Southwark Farleigh

Farleigh, St Mary

St Mary's is a medieval jewel. Built by Robert De Watville around 1080, it is largely unaltered. For nearly half the Christian Era, Robert's little church has stood in Farleigh, and the people of Farleigh and beyond have come to it to worship our Lord. We welcome all those who visit our church today.

Services at St Mary's are held in traditional language, following the Book of Common prayer. Parish Communion is on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays of the month, and Mattins on the 1st and 3rd Sundays at 9.30am. Services have resumed with Covid 19 precautions. Summer teas have been suspended for 2020.  Usually in the summer,  Afternoon tea with home made cake is also available in the hall and churchyard , and the church is open during the teas, so that visitors can look at this Grade 1 listed ancient church.  Also in the summer, a service of Compline is held by candlelight each Sunday at 8 pm, with a short talk, by one of a wide variety of speakers, on the life of a person of faith or character from the Bible. Also in  Advent and Lent there are Compline services, the traditional service of Night prayer, usually at 4 pm, but please check the website/facebook page for time

St Mary’s has a loop system for the hard of hearing. The detached hall includes a well equipped kitchen and toilets. Outside the church gate to the churchyard there is a large area for car parking

The parish of Farleigh: St Mary is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Southwark’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
