Thank you for visiting our website.
A Church is nothing without its 'living stones', the people.
We warmly encourage you to drop in for one of our services or activities.

This fine church, parts of which date from the 12th Century, stands at the centre of a handsome town whose Georgian heritage, as well as its distinctive and individual character, makes it an attractive place to live, work and visit. The church is a significant landmark on the Pilgrim’s Way – the ancient route from Winchester to Canterbury. We serve a growing and changing town, whose many businesses employ significant numbers of people. Farnham is home to many long-standing residents, students and staff from the University of the Creative Arts, as well as people who have come to live here more recently and who commute to work in London (just an hour away by train).
We serve everyone who lives and works in our parish in central Farnham. We are conscious of the Church of England’s unique calling to be a place of welcome to all – irrespective of their faith convictions. Many people worship here on Sundays and during week, where the Eucharist is at the centre of our life. Many others value the church as a place of silence and reflection during the day, where they can bring their needs, longings and hopes to God; where candles can be lit, or the simple spaciousness of the building can be enjoyed. We are glad to host many musical and artistic events, too, and are keen to encourage use of the church by the wider community.
Elsewhere on this website you can pick up a flavour of our life and worship, as well as the many ways in which we strive to serve the people of Farnham. I hope your ‘virtual’ visit will inspire you to come and discover the church, as well as the Christian community which cares for it.
