Who are the Friends of Malew Church?
We are an independent
conservation charity. We are not part of any religious denomination.
Our aim is to preserve one of the Island’s most important
historic buildings, Malew Church, at Church Bends on the Southern
Hundred course north of Castletown.
What do we do?
We have started to organise the repair and
restoration of the church, including removing damage done during
the 20th century.
We have commissioned Bryan Kneale’s Illiam Dhone, perhaps
one of the most significant works of art installed in a church
in Britain in recent centuries.
We keep the church open for visitors, and we have produced a guidebook.
We hold tours of the
churchyard, and we arrange one exclusive visit each year
to a place of interest on the Island not normally accessible
We hope to be able to organise more concerts and other
performances at the church.
