St Mary’s holds a special place in the hearts of so many people in Kidlington and also much further away. As well as being an historic gem and a sacred space for all comers it is also a community resource for all sorts of events. We are here for everyone, regardless of religious affiliation. The Friends scheme is a chance for people who value St Mary’s to help to maintain and improve the building and its community facilities through subscriptions, fund raising, and a range of interesting and fun events.

Money raised by the Friends will not be used for religious purposes but for the fabric of the building and community access. We have some exciting plans for new facilities on the site and for a varied programme of Friends events through the years to come.
