St Mary’s Church Cowaramup

Star 4.0 (2 Google reviews)

St Mary’s sits in a shady nook in the undulating grassed area of Memorial Park in the middle of "Cowaramup", an Aboriginal word which translates to “place of the purple-crowned lorikeet”. The old wooden church is adjacent to a rose garden and a wall of remembrance commemorating many of the original settlers in the area. Services are held at 11.15am on the first and third Sundays of the month. Visitors are invited to join in worship. Special services are arranged on the major festivals of the Christian calendar as well as occasional services as required.
The town of Cowaramup was gazetted in 1925. The community received a generous donation from Church of England associates enabling the church to be built. It was licensed for services in January 1929 and dedicated to St Mary the Virgin on 9th April that year by Bishop Wilson. 
St Mary’s is a private and rustic place where quiet and meaningful marriages have and still take place. Many “well known” people have made their vows in the church. 
Some of Cowaramup’s contented cows sit near the church, and there is a recently constructed sound shell and amphitheatre to the rear of the church. Many of the finest wines produced in the Margaret River region have been blessed and savoured on the church greens.
