The Friends of St Mary’s

St. Mary’s is both an historic and active church that plays a major role in the life of the Long Crendon community. As Friends of St.Mary’s, we provide a tangible link between the church and the community and at the same time broaden the base of our support for the church beyond our immediate congregation.

The Friends Scheme

We welcome and encourage those who have an association with St. Mary’s or who would like to support the work of the Church to become a Friend of St. Mary’s. If you would like to help in this way, please contact Geoff Smith, the current Chair of the Friends.

You don’t have to donate to be a member of the Friends.

The St. Mary’s congregation funds the normal running expenditure of the church and also makes regular contributions to the Diocese, including donating to charitable causes. However, over and above the normal running expenses, an extensive programme of internal and external repairs, including maintaining the churchyard must be supported. St Mary’s congregation alone cannot fund these expenses, and we greatly value the generosity of  the Friends in supporting these necessary projects.
