2nd Wednesday of the month

2nd Wednesday 10:30 am Contemplative Worship

 

A monthly, midweek service of prayerful, quiet reflection with readings and music

 

Built about 1428, but with some remains of Early English and Norman features, the building contains many notable features. These include a stone font and pulpit, a squint, many stained glass windows, a peal of eight bells and a statue of the patron saint. Historically it was the centre of the Anglo-Saxon hundred.

In the year 2000 we had an area at the back of the church refurbished and made into a kitchen area which includes a toilet and hand-washing facilities, a facility much appreciated by our parishioners and where new and old blend well together.
