For over a thousand years St Mary’s Church, in the square that forms the heart of Lenham village, has been attracting worshippers and visitors. They come for many different reasons: to pray, to appreciate its ancient legacy or just for a moment of quiet reflection. The aim of the Friends of St Mary’s is not only to maintain the Grade 1 listed church but to preserve its beauty for future generations. 

The Friends of St Mary’s Church Lenham is a registered charity, no.1160993. We raise funds for our work from our membership, from donations and from the events we organise throughout the year.
