Raising funds for the upkeep of our Norman Church
We have a welcoming and friendly church community and run a Harvest Supper, Christmas Fayre, Winter Lunch, and Summer Fayre.
Other events in the summer are Ride & Stride, and our Garden Safari. The “Four Charities”, a Joint charity with Brede supports four overseas charities, The Deaf in Tanzania, Papua New Guinea Church Partnership, The Fistula Foundation and Sight Savers.
Charities and Clubs and other groups are generally shared with our neighbours at Brede. Groups such as the Mother's Union, Women's Institute, a Luncheon club, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Brownies are all based there. Details of all events are published in the monthly Parish Magazine which covers the two parishes, Brede and Udimore.

ST MARY'S CHURCH FLOWERS
St Mary's Church flower arranging team is happy to welcome anyone, experienced or beginner, to join the regular church flower arranging team. For more information contact Nadia Florence-Marshall HERE.
FRIENDS OF ST MARY'S
St Mary's Church dates back to Saxon times. By the 19th century it was in a very poor state, dependant on a small parish of about 300 people and the generosity of individuals.
The Friends of St Mary's was formed in 1985, concerned mainly with raising funds for the upkeep of the fabric of the church. Over the years we have contributed to repairs and improvements in the church and are extremely grateful to those who have enabled us to do so.
We welcome anyone who would like to become a Friend and join in with all that this small but vibrant community offers. A yearly subscription of £5 entitles you to vote at the AGM. For more information contact the Liz Dean HERE.
Udimore Parish Council represents local residents and works with the East Sussex County Council and Rother District Council to deliver services to meet local needs and to improve the quality of life in the Parish. Udimore Parish Council is completely separate from the local Parochial Church Council (PCC) which is part of the Church of England and is responsible for St Mary's Church. For more information HERE.
THE 4 CHARITIES GROUP
We are a local group which was set up as the overseas outreach for St. George's Brede and St. Mary's Udimore over 20 years ago. During the last few years the group has raised over £28,000 all of which has been distributed to the charities the group support.
This achievement reflects the wonderful support we have received from local and nearby communities who have come to the various events.
The charities the group support are:
Deaf in Tanzanear https://tanzanear.org
Freedom from Fistula Ethiopia
Papua New Guinea Church Partnership
More information about each charity can be found on the 4CHARITIES website - www.4charities.net
