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. 

Have your say! There are plans to refurbish the back area of the church, creating space for events, meetings etc right in the centre of the village. A questionnaire is included with the December issue of The Lenham Focus, to ask the whole community what they would like to see this space used for in the future. There’s still plenty of time to submit your views if you’ve not yet had the chance, as the survey will be open until the end of January. Click here to view and print a copy of the questionnaire.

Can you help us count the pounds and the pennies? We’re looking for a new Treasurer. Click here for more information.
