St Mary the Virgin is a grade I listed building, dating back to the 11th century. The church can seat over 300 in the pews, possibly 400 with chairs in open spaces.
A sound reinforcement system has been installed. The peal of 8 bells is heavy. The tenor bell was cast for the 1951 Festival of Britain. There is an active Tower organisation, and sufficient ringers can be brought in to cover Sunday mornings and most other occasions when a peal is appropriate.
In 1993 a sympathetic extension was added to the north side of the church, giving two good-sized rooms, plus a vestibule capable of separate use. The extension incorporates a small kitchen and toilet facilities.
The original churchyard is no longer used for burials but there is an extension to the churchyard on the other side of Church Street.
A church has stood on this site for over 850 years – that's not long after the Conquest by Duke William of Normandy. Since then – both before and after the Reformation continuous worship has been offered to the Glory of God.
If you need peace, silence, time to think, our church is open everyday during daylight hours.

Feering parish church stands in a traditional rural setting close to the Village Green and the local pub. Like St. Mary's church it has stood sentinel over the village for over 850 years.
The church contains many fine features not least the glorious East window which glows jewel like and contains many scenes from Our Lord's Passion.

LENT GROUP ON ZOOM - STARTING TUESDAY 23rd FEBRUARY
Our new Tuesday evening Zoom Lent Group starts this Tuesday, 23rd February at 8.00 pm. We’re reading Being Disciples, a very short book by Rowan Williams (SPCK, 2016 – ISBN 978-0-281-07662-8). Only 80 pages, it’s a rich, thoughtful book that repays time given to it; it’s also very accessible, quite easy to read and widely available to buy online. There will be 6 sessions, based on the 6 chapters: ‘Being disciples’; ‘Faith, hope and love’; ‘Forgiveness’; ‘Holiness’; ‘Faith in society’; and ‘Life in the Spirit’. Each session will last about an hour, and we do hope you can join us. Here are the Zoom details:
