The Community Trust

St. Mary's is the oldest church site in the town of Sandwich and it remains consecrated.

The Church is situated within the old historic core of the town - all designated as a Conservation Area. The building is in the care of The Churches Conservation Trust (TCCT), a national body which oversees several hundred churches selected for their historic and architectural value.

Sandwich St. Mary's Community Trust (SSMCT) is a Charity registered in September 1997 whose aims are to improve the facilities at St. Mary's Church, for the better enjoyment of music and the arts, to the benefit of Sandwich and the surrounding area of East Kent.

The Churches Conservation TrustThe building is in the care of The Churches Conservation Trust (TCCT), a national body which oversees several hundred churches selected for their historic and architectural value.

SSMCT — in agreement with TCCT and other involved organisations — has raised funds to provide 300 new seats, new lighting, mobility ramp, storage/changing room, toilet, kitchen facilities & full heating.

A large demountable stage is in place (in conjunction with the Sandwich Festival Association).

Today, St. Mary’s Art Centre offers an ideal venue for that special occasion, celebration or event.
