The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin. Windmill Lane, East Grinstead, West Sussex.

Welcome to our church website

St Mary's Parish covers the northern side of East Grinstead. We were founded about 110 years ago to meet the needs of the expanding town and to provide the town with worship of the catholic tradition within the Church of England. A tradition that we have upheld ever since.

We hope that you will find our website helpful. Please take a little time to browse the different areas

Window Challenge.

We launched the window challenge on Sunday 2nd July, the Anniversary of the Consecration of our church building, when we celebrated all that it symbolises for us as the people of God in this place.

The Window Challenge is a fundraising project for the next phase in our restoration and refurbishment of the church. We need to replace the failing audio system and the church lighting as a matter of relative urgency. To do this we need to raise in the region of at least £40,000.
