Welcome to the Friends of St Mary's Winkfield, a charity set up to raise money for the conservation, embellishment and maintenance of fabric and facilities of the medieval church of St Mary's in Winkfield, East Berkshire, south of Windsor. Its full address is St Mary's church, Church Road, Winkfield, Berks, SL4 4SF.
The Church of St Mary has been a focal point in Winkfield for over 700 years. Our aim is to preserve this magnificent building in the best possible condition for generations to come.
St Mary's is a place of peace and all are welcome. This wonderful building is a piece of English history and our aim is to ensure it remains so.
The cost of maintenance of St Mary's church and of its amenities is wholly carried by voluntary donations. Please help us, either by becoming a Friend (follow the menu item above) or by a donation.
You can CAFDonate to the Friends' general fund by clicking the link at the bottom of the page. This will take you to the CAFDonate website, which will process your kind gift. Thank you!!
You can donate to special projects, which will have a well-identified button.
From time to time, the Friends organise community fund-raising events. Do support these - they will be well-documented on this website. To make this easier we are able to take secure card-payment.
Regular parish events can be found by following this link. More detail about future events can be found in the current Parish Mag (which can be accessed online on this link).
Unfortunately it is with great regret that this has been cancelled. Luke Saint who has been one of the organists at St Mary’s for several years was conductor of the Founders Choir of Royal Holloway College and had agreed to a concert at St Mary’s. I was very fortunate and had attended a performance of the choir at Holloway and thought the sound quite magical and Luke an exceedingly polished performer. We hope there may be an opportunity for the choir to perform at St Mary’s later in the year.
The Afternoon tea on 7 July at the home of the Treasurer will still take place, providing we are out of lock down. However there will be no additional stalls. Instead it will be an “At Home”. We have organised these before with some success. There will be a wonderful “Afternoon Tea” and the opportunity to win a large hamper of interesting goodies. There will be a charge of £10 which will be passed to the church to help with the Parish Share bill for this year. If we have to change the date it will move to the following Guild meeting date Tuesday 4 August. You can now purchase tickets on line. The address will be advised on purchase of ticket(s).
