A warm welcome from the St Mary’s team to our new website. It is still a work in progress, so please bear with us as we continue to get it up-to-date and relevant. Some of the web-links and email addresses are still to be activated and new calendar/diary entries need to be added, but we are gradually getting there. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Welcome to the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Shenfield website.

For three-quarters of a millennium prayer has been offered at our church and it has soaked into the walls, giving it a special atmosphere. Why not come and visit us, look at our treasures, stay a while, offer a prayer and go on your way a little closer to God. You will be very welcome.

This summer, we would like you, the St Mary’s Church and School community, to ‘Ride and Stride’. Please go to for more information
