The Friends of St. Mary de Haura
The Friends support the ongoing maintenance and restoration of St Mary’s, one of the most magnificent and architecturally important Parish Church buildings in Sussex.
This beautiful and ancient building receives no funding from either the government or the Church of England to support its upkeep. In the late middle ages, the de Braose family funded the upkeep using money from trading at Shoreham port, but after some years financial responsibility was transferred to the people of the town.
You can support this work by joining the Friends of St Mary’s for just £10
You can also join or donate to the friends by cheque

Together we can preserve this beautiful building to ensure it remains at the heart of Shoreham for centuries to come.
