Our small brick Georgian Church, situated on the B4116 on the west side of the village, is a warm, welcoming and friendly place of worship. At various times of the year, social events take place which aim to involve and entertain the whole community, notably our Harvest Supper “Variety Show” every October. The interior of the church was modernised in 2001 and we enjoy comfortable seating and a carpeted floor. In 2013 kitchen facilities and a toilet were added, turning our church into a space that can be used by the whole community.
Our worship ranges from the traditional to the informal. Since 2008 we have been holding “Community Worship” on the third Sunday of every month. This service is entirely organised and led by village residents of all ages, and something different and lively every month can be guaranteed!
