About us...

For more information about our parishes and group of churches, may we encourage you to look at our Brochure which was prepared as part of our vacancy process.


This website is full of information and our gallery has lots of photographs. We very much hope you will enjoy exploring.


We are delighted to announce that the Revd Martin Fletcher who was serving as Vicar of Hersham in the Diocese of Guildford, has now been installed and collated as Rector of the United Benefice of Richmond with Hudswell and Downholme and Marske in the Ripon Episcopal Area of the Diocese of Leeds. 

The collation and induction service for Martin took place on Thursday 26th April 2018 at 7.30pm at St Mary's Richmond to which all were welcome.  There was a fantastic turnout from our congregations and our community and we now look forward with great joy and anticipation to a new season here in our United Benefice.  

We pray for Martin as he settles in and for Hersham and for his previous congregation as they begin to start their vacancy process.
