Following national advice from the Archbishops to all Anglican churches we are suspending all Sunday and midweek services in church until further notice. All other groups will also cease to meet in person for the time being too.
However, we've not stopped just because our building is closed. We are streaming daily prayer and Sunday services on Facebook:
Daily prayer at our sister church's page:
Sunday worship on our own page:
You can also see recent services below.
If you're here because you've seen some of our streamed services and want to know more, welcome! If there is anything we can do to help, maybe there are questions this site doesn't answer, please do contact the Rector: firstname.lastname@example.org

Despite the current closure of the church building, we are delighted to announce that we have been presented with the Eco Church Bronze award by A Rocha. This is testament to the hard work put in primarily by Jane Woolmer and reflects initiatives in both practical and spiritual aspects of church life.
23 May 2020: Good news, as the government and Church of England have both updated their advice about construction work, the renovation is about to resume. The building remains closed to all other use, in some ways even more firmly closed, due to the health and safety precautions in place to mitigate infection risk.
30 March 2020: unfortunately the works in the church building have had to be paused - while they are important to us, they do not count as 'essential' in this time of national emergency. We look forward to them resuming when possible, and for re-worked plans for a great celebratory re-opening and resumption of worship.
As you can see, the renovation works have begun! The scaffolding was put up in the first week of January and the next stage is stripping out all the old electrical wiring and installing the new. The building is closed from January-March as a full re-decoration takes place. We look forward to opening the building again in April 2020 with also a new lighting and AV system in place.
In the mean time all Sunday services are taking place in the usual pattern at the Village Hall.
Usually the church is open every day Monday - Saturday roughly 10am - 5pm.
However during the current crisis our church, like all other Anglican churches, will remain closed until government advice changes.
Our services on Sunday are at 8am (every other Sunday) and 10.30am every week.
