Friends of All Saints’

Friends of All Saints’ are dedicated to help to preserve our ancient church dating back to 1250, for the benefit of the local community and for future generations.

The Friends support the Parochial Church Council by raising funds for items needed by the church and churchyard that otherwise might not be possible to provide. Over recent years, these have included replacing Bibles, purchasing upholstered chairs, upgrading noticeboards, and in the churchyard, erecting a shed and providing a gate, maintenance tools and equipment.

This year the Friends celebrated their tenth anniversary, and a major project has been the restoration of paintings by a former Church warden, Charles Langton Lockton, which are on permanent loan in Warlingham Library Many local residents hold the church and churchyard in special regard and are pleased to assist in its preservation as Friends. They may also live further afield, having moved from the area or been guests at memorable baptisms and weddings or are relatives and friends who tend the graves of loved ones.

Friends receive three newsletters a year with information on current projects and church diary events and there is also an annual social event, usually held in the Spring.

Everyone is warmly invited to join.
