St Mary’s Church is enjoying a reputation as a marvelous venue for live music: Classical, Jazz and Popular.

Nearly all our concerts require a bar for interval refreshments. This could be coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon or a fully licensed bar in the evening.

Could you give some time to help run things?

A major perk is free entry to events and the chance to hear some first-class music in a wonderful setting.

The bar can get very busy, so it’s a good chance to ‘meet and greet’ people who have travelled from far and wide.

If you are interested contact Gill Spurr:


We are also looking for enthusiastic and committed music lovers to join our Music Committee.

You will contribute ideas for future events and liaise with artists and promoters.

The committee meets approximately once a month at St Mary’s Church, usually on a Wednesday, at 5.00pm.

Willingness to lend a hand at concerts is a must.  There are various roles to fulfill – nothing heavy!

 We held the first ever performance of the Kingdom Project here today thanks to the wonderful Hay St Mary’s church.  The show, ‘Coulrophobia’, was a great success; the church the perfect theatre location.

We very much look forward to next year!

Thank you, Hay St Mary’s, Fr. Richard, and all of your team.

Ami – Kingdom Project Director


It was wonderfully weird to be performing in a church, but we loved it! Thanks. Dik


The Parish Hall Committee is pleased to announce that the Parish Hall has recently undergone some major redecoration work.

This has been carried out by builders Willmott Dixon, who have just completed work on the new Hay County Primary School.

The redecoration was part of the company’s ‘community support’ effort and was very welcome as the hall was looking very tired, to say the least.

Work undertaken includes:

Repairing plaster, skirting and dado where water ingress has caused damage;

Repainting hall walls and timberwork, fitting notice boards;

Painting toilets and timberwork;

Painting hall reception and front door;

Installing handrails for disabled users in the toilets;

Improving ventilation by replacing ceiling tiles for vents;

Removing external render to rear of the hall;

Repairing lightning conductor to the roof;

Excavating and reducing levels at the rear of the hall to stop water ingress and subsequent damage.

The Parish Hall could be your perfect venue for training days, sales events, wedding receptions and other social events.
