The Friends of St Mary’s Beaminster

St. Mary’s Church Beaminster has been a place for people to pray, to admire, and to love for hundreds of years. Today it continues to serve the town and surrounding area. As well as being open on Sundays for a variety of services it is also available throughout the week for gatherings of one sort or another. But there is no getting away from the fact there is a cost involved. The Church has its own fundraising events and the Friends joins in with attempting to raise cash for the church’s needs. The Friends maintains a link between the church and the people of Beaminster.

The invitation to join The Friends is open to everyone and anyone who is interested in this church regardless of religious persuasion. Becoming a Friend is one of the best ways to help keep this church open for today’s people and for those of tomorrow.

By joining the Friends of St. Mary’s you will help us financially, and help to preserve and enhance this important Beaminster landmark. There will be fundraising events for you to support and the committee will always be grateful for any help which might be offered at such an event.
