†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
