The church of St Mary, Wingfield

St Mary, Wingfield, is a listed building with a 15th-century tower. The earliest recorded rector, Thomas Shawebure, was appointed in 1313. St Mary's has served the village ever since.

The church lies at the south-east end of the village of Wingfield and consists of a chancel, nave, west tower, south porch, and a vestry. With the exception of the 15th-century tower and chancel arch it dates from the 17th century and all the windows, other than the east window which is modern, are of that period. The vestry, built on the north side, is a late addition and houses an organ, installed by the 5th Earl Temple of Stowe.

St Mary, Wingfield, provides services from both Common Worship and The Book of Common Prayer together with a less formal Family Service once a month. It maintains a close involvement with Wingfield Primary School and has a Sunday Club for children once a month.

A major event in the corporate life of Wingfield is the Church Fête which, besides being a major fundraising event, is a happy social occasion. Other activities are shared with Westwood or with the Bradford Group Ministry.
