Welcome to the website of St Mary's Church Bletchingley
Bletchingley’s beautiful church stands in the centre of our village community,
and for over 900 years, villagers and people from all walks of life,
have found sanctuary and the love of God in this building,
sharing fellowship and worship together.
Today is the same, the church is the village's church, and everyone is very welcome,
whether to come to a service, to visit our architectural and historic gems,
or to find space for privacy and prayer.
Our worship is eucharistically based - using Common Worship Modern language - and is well supported by a wide variety of age groups serving the breadth of the local community. We have a strong choir who help to lead our worship Sunday by Sunday, and an enthusiastic team of bell ringers call the faithful to worship.
The children's Sunday Club is a special highlight for our younger worshippers
Of the many things that we value in our church life together, spiritual guidance, tolerance, commitment and a sense of fun are universal. We enjoy a high standard of pastoral care that is exercised at all levels, celebrating the value of every individual within our community. We work closely with the parish of St Peter and St Paul, our sister church within the Benefice and share resources and the occasional services with Christ Church, South Nutfield, the third church within our group of churches.
The church entrance has a ramp with handrails, there is an audio loop system for the hard of hearing and large print service books and hymn sheets are available.
The church is open every day from 9am to 5pm
To arrange christenings, weddings or funerals please contact the Churchwardens
We hope you will enjoy our website and that it will give you a flavour of our parish and the diverse ways in which we share our love of God with each other and all who visit or live here.
We have now sadly said goodbye to our rector, the Rev'd Canon Peter Moseling who has retired.
We are extremely grateful for the contribution he is made to both our church life and life within our village. We wish him, and his wife Ann, God's blessings and a very happy retirement.
