Welcome to St. Mary's Church Foy
In 2010 the Church successfully completed a re-roofing project, preserving the life of the building for the use and appreciation of future generations. The Foy PCC would like to thank everyone who helped to make the project a success and of course none of this would have been possible without the generous donations of visitors, parishioners and charitable institutions alike.
A new webpage detailing the project will be added to the site in due course.
This website is split into major sections (e.g. home, service schedule, fees etc.) which can easily be accessed by clicking the links at the bottom right of the picture banner at the top of the page.
On this page one can find answers to some frequently asked questions (FAQs), by clicking on the "jump-to" links in the sub-menu to the left.

When is Foy Church open?
The Church is open most days of the year from 10.00am until dusk.
Our car park provides ample parking directly outside. Although level access is available to the inside of the Church, please let us know if you need to utilise this in advance of your visit by contacting our keyholder.
Where is Foy Church?
St. Mary's Church is in the hamlet of Foy, just North of Ross on Wye in South Herefordshire.
Due to our secluded location on a peninsula in a meander of the River Wye and the fact that the village can only be accessed via a no-through road, we can be difficult to find.
Below is a fully interactive map of our location. You can move the map by holding down the left mouse button in the window and dragging the mouse. Also, you can zoom in and out by using the plus and minus buttons in the top left of the window.
Foy church is signified by the blue marker:

To get directions to the church from anywhere in the UK, simply click on the blue marker, then click on "To here" in the pop-out box, enter your postcode and finally click the "Go" button.
Please note that Google Maps will open in a new window after clicking "Go".
As you enter the village of Foy you will drive past a large stone and red brick wall on your right, promptly followed by farm outbuildings on your left. After this the entrance to the church car park is the next right (n.b. our church notice board is situated at the entrance).

How can i make a donation?
We are always grateful for any donations towards the operating costs of the church, which increase year on year. In 2009 to keep Foy church open cost £16.62 per day.
Although there is an offertory box in the nave of the church for visitors, one can also donate without having to make a special journey. For more information please click on the "donations" link at the top of the page.
