Christians have been worshipping here for over a thousand years and St Mary’s Church has evolved over that time, adapting to the changing needs of society. We are embarking on a programme to update the facilities while preserving the very special character of the Church.
We welcome a great number of visitors, attracted to this historic oasis of calm in a bustling town centre. Built on a hillside, it is on several levels. The interior is adaptable and hosts a range of activities beyond regular worship, including concerts, meals, receptions, weddings, plays, art exhibitions and craft fairs. Throughout its life St Mary’s has been at the heart of the Guildford community and we are working to make it more open for the wider community.
