Friends of St Mary's Church, Overton-on-Dee  

This church dates from about 1450 and replaces an ancient Saxon church.Overton_Church_small
Preservation of the building and its monuments is costly.
The regular congregation can no longer sustain the expenses.

We really need your help now

The aims of the Friends are

  • To help with the maintenance, care, development and improvement of the historic building
  • To encourage use of the Church in a wide range of activities for the benefit of the community
  • To encourage visitors and the families of those who have been baptised, married or buried at St. Mary's to take a long-term interest in its welfare.
  • To carry on any activities to enable the above aims to be achieved.

The Friends of St Mary’s Church want to preserve this building
and the many splendid items within for future generations.
