The Friends of St Mary's Church Cerne Abbas was set up as a charity (Registered Charity no: 1148416) under the guidance of Richard Warren. Richard had served on the Council of the Friends of Sherborne Abbey (arguably the oldest friends scheme in the country) and was responsible for rewriting an updated constitution in 2004 and we used a booklet entitled "A Friends Scheme for a Parish Church" published by The Canterbury Diocesan Board of Finance, ISBN 0 902765 09 04, as a frame of reference around which to discuss the various possibilities.

A copy of the constitution agreed wuth the Charity Commisioners may be downloaded from here, and copy of the investment policy may be downloaded from  here.

Current Trustees are:
John Champion
Bob Foulser
Anthony Garvey
Helen Hewitt
Alan Morrell
Peter Smith

Each year we hold an AGM and publish accounts. These documents are available for download as pdfs here:
