The Ripley community is facing big challenges this year and our Church is committed to doing all we can to support all Schools and Youth Organisations, Friends and Neighbours, Young and Old, in the many ways we work together to build community life.

Please feel free to contact the Vicar or other Church members if you think there is something we can do to offer spiritual or practical support at this challenging time; sharing ideas and energy will bring us success.

St Mary Magdalen’s Day

We celebrate our Saint’s Day on Sunday with a special all-age service followed by a Barbecue. Please bring your protein - whatever you want barbecued - and stuff to go with it and we can all relax together. The children tend to enjoy the food and exploring in the Churchyard and we usually have enough puddings to share. If you decide to come at the last minute there will be food to share.

Excellent company and a lovely chance to relax.

We Support our Village School

The “Save Ripley School” website has a detailed description of the many actions that have led our School to face its present threat. Big lies and little lies; unsubstantiated and uncorrected erroneous assertions, and much more come together to reveal people with power abusing it with no regard for the pupils of the school.

At one point in a detailed description of all of this - well worth the read - the following summary says it all:

It's fair to say that Surrey County Council are the reason we are where we are now, and The Church of England is the reason we're not going anywhere else.
