St Marys Temple

St Mary's Temple

St. Mary’s is a “chapel of ease” built in the late perpendicular style by the Barton Trust and funded by Mary Barton in memory of her husband and son. The first service was held in 1903. Services have followed the Book of Common Prayer on a regular basis but now have a new pattern. Until recently an active and dedicated group of volunteers from the congregation have kept the church clean, polished brass, arranged flowers, maintained the grounds and carried out minor building maintenance but it has now been passed to the care of ‘Friends of Friendless Churches’ who will permit some services to be held during the year. The regular Matins Service has now returned to the Parish Church of St.Margaret of Antioch.
