Anmer Church

St Mary the Virgin

Visitors to Anmer should take time to look at the village's delightful church.

The church is open most days (there is a sign to indicate whether it is open or closed.)

History

The oldest part of the church is 800 years old. It used to be the centre of the village but the village was moved after the plague to the place you can now visit. Some of the features you can see if you visit the church are the altar cloth which was restored by the Royal Needlework School at Hampton Court.

The Royal Coat of Arms opposite the entrance door was restored a few years ago and you can follow it's history if you look at the writings and pictures on the notice board in the Baptistry. The nave screen, which was donated by the Queen Mary has recently been restored and decorated by the widely respected Iconographer, Aidan Hart, by kind permission of HRH The Prince of Wales, and if you look above, an Epistyle was added; all as a result of work graciously commissioned at Dumfries House by HRH the Prince of Wales, as he then was.

Weddings and Baptisms

Further information about church services and whether you can use the church for a baptism or a wedding can be sought by emailing the Church Warden on Njcolema@aol.com

The church welcomes donations - however small. Thank you.
