St Mary's church provides an opportunity for people of all ages to worship in a traditional and friendly atmosphere.
We use the 1662 Book of Common Prayer at our Morning Prayer and Communion services and take our readings from the King James Bible.
The ancient church building has stood on its present site in the heart of Winkfield for at least 700 years. It is famous for its unusual oak pillars along the centre of the aisle, one given to the Church by Elizabeth 1st.
