History

Our parish community here in Leatherhead has a long and fascinating history. The parish church of St Mary & St Nicholas is the oldest building in Leatherhead, used by generations as a focus for worship and prayer and to mark events in family and national life.

The Victorian church of All Saints in Leatherhead Common has a new role as BFree with the Leatherhead Youth Project and its history is not forgotten.

In order to do justice to it, we have a massive separate website devoted to our history and key events in the continuing story of the church serving our community:

  • our people – celebrating the lives of some of those we have known
  • our clergy over the years
  • our musicians, organs, choirs and music group
  • the names on graves and in our huge churchyard
  • our war memorials
  • a record of key events in our more recent parish life
  • and of course our Anglican churches - St Mary & St Nicholas, and All Saints

There is much to explore, including the re-creation of our Georgian Thomas Parker organ.
