Restoration of St. Mary's Church
To mark the completion of Phase One of the major restoration work a service of Holy Eucharist was held on Sunday 2nd April 2006 when the Celebrant was the Bishop of St Davids. Our bells were rung by the St David's Diocesan Guild of Bellringers - see 'The Church' for details.
St Mary's is a Grade 1 listed building at the top of Haverfordwest's High Street where it forms an important and prominent landmark in the Conservation Area of the town.
It is one of the most architecturally important parish churches in Wales as it retains so much of its medieval character and features. However,of just thirty acres, St Mary's is one of the smallest parishes in the county, created as an urban parish in the heart of the thriving medieval port and market town of Haverfordwest. It must therefore look for support beyond its boundaries.
In recent years £120,000 has been raised for essential building works, to restore the organ, refurbish the bells, and other essential work. Now, however, the urgency and extent of many of the repairs necessary to St. Mary's Church were such that a large restoration project was essential.
