Churchyard & Daily Friends
Our team of gardeners are responsible for the beautiful rural appearance of our churchyard, through their work of planting and tending the garden areas, cutting the grass and sweeping the paths.
Their work on the expanded Garden of Remembrance has made it an attractive area for quiet contemplation.
Churchyard garden work parties from 10.30-11.30 every Saturday morning. Gardeners and general helpers warmly welcomed. An ideal opportunity to enjoy a good cup of coffee and some yummy cake too! Contact Rosie Findlater 020 8876 5338 or just turn up.
Our volunteers open the church on weekday mornings and offer a friendly welcome to visitors. Many people pop into St Mary’s as they pass by or are maybe following the Barnes Trail . Daily Friends talk to visitors about the history of St Mary’s, show them around and answer questions.
To be a Daily Friend, you only need to volunteer one hour once a fortnight. We will help you with all you need to know about St Mary’s. This is a great way to learn more about the history and life of our church and to be part of our community.
