St Mary's 600 Appeal


Next year, 2022, will be a special year for St Mary's as we will be celebrating 600 years since the founding of The Bede House (and also Chichele College).

As part of preparing for that we are about to embark on a large and exciting project - St Mary’s 600 Appeal - to improve the facilities of our unique grade 1 listed church buildings for wider community use.

We are conducting a survey of residents to help us learn more about our community needs as we'd love to know how we as a church can better provide for our community. The information will be used for the next phase of our Project Planning.
