Welcome To St Mary Magdalene Church

for the Surrey villages of Mid Holmwood, South Holmwood and Beare Green 

We meet at 10am in South Holmwood every Sunday morning

Coffee and a welcome always on the menu.

'Cafe Church' - a much more informal event - is at Beare Green Village Hall on the first Sunday of every month at 11.30am

St MM Church a meeting place between God and people through Jesus...

St Mary Magdalene Church provides a well loved spiritual space in a busy world 

It was built in 1838.

If you want to find us, don't go entirely by the postcode RH5 4JX !

Go off the A24 at the subway into South Holmwood village by Betchets Green Road then turn left up the drive past the church notice board. The church is at the very top and it has a large car park with a couple of spaces for disabled badge holder parking. There is also a loo suitable for disabled people in the adjoining Parish Room.

You will find people gathering here at 10am on Sundays but many other people use the building for their own quiet moments and respect it as a place of prayer.

The Parish of St Mary Magdalene, Holmwood is committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of the children within our church community, and also to encouraging an environment where all people and especially those who may be vulnerable are able to worship and pursue their faith journey with encouragement and in safety.

We are also committed to the implementation of the Diocese of Guildford Safeguarding Policy and Procedures, and the relevant statutory legislation and guidance for the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults.

Look at the news and events page for all the fun things we do and opportunities for worship.

We value the Bible and encourage people to discover it for themselves.

We are always in need of funds - there is no subsidy from outside sources, contrary to popular opinion. We have to find £6.000 every month to pay our way. Our accounts are open to view.

We mark the milestones of life for people and are still the most comprehensive source of community life, drawing people together of all ages and from all walks of life.

The church is open for anyone to share.
