St Mary’s 2020 Project
We are currently fundraising and sourcing over £80,000 for the following work to be done, to make St Mary’s Church fit for future generations:
- A new accessible toilet, accessed by a new outside path.
- A new kitchenette area at the back of our church, to help us prepare refreshments more easily and hygienically.
- A new tiled floor at the front of church, strong enough to hold the ancient font. This will create a new ‘chapel’ area, with a new window, perfect for hosting baptisms and small community events, such as coffee mornings.
- Overhaul of the church electrical system.
Services are held here every Sunday at 11am – see Services and Events for more info.
Family Services first Sunday of the month. Cafe Church fourth Sunday of the month.

This medieval church, which is somewhat humble and rustic in appearance, is situated in
the centre of a growing village and has seen many changes over the years since it was built. The church is situated on a small knoll which means that it is slightly elevated above its surroundings.
The nave and chancel were built between 1070-1180, with the western tower being added in the 14th century and the south porch in the 15th century.
After many years of neglect, the church was restored and reopened in 1877 and in February 1879 a new organ was dedicated.
In 1931 a small vestry was built to the south of the chancel.
