The Opportunity to Help Protect the Church Building and Win a Monthly Prize


The Trustees of The Friends of St Mary the Virgin Church, Maulden run a ‘Share Club’ to raise funds for the charity and we invite you to start a membership of the Club for 2022 and so assist us in keeping the ‘Church on the Hill’ in good repair for both current and future generations.


There is an annual subscription of £18.00 per annum (or part, according to commencement date), half goes directly into Trust funds, the other half is distributed to members through the monthly draw with 4 prizes.  The prizes constitute 35, 30, 20 and 15% of the monies available that month.  The more members we have the larger the prize ’pot’.   


The draw results are published in the Maulden Magazine and you will be contacted if you win.


If you would like to help us and have a chance of winning in a monthly draw, then please send your details to the Share Club Administrator by email at or click here:




We have held a number of events over the years - details of some are below.


Our last event was a Choral concert on Friday 14th July 2023 which was sold out.  ChoralNova are a vibrant and exciting new choir who performed a fabulous mix of songs for a summer concert ain the Church.
