Our vision is to be a joyous, welcoming, caring church family in the heart of our village community, open to all and working together to bring the good news of Jesus to everyone.
Our church, dedicated to St Mary the Virgin, is a tranquil place where residents and visitors can worship God at regular services or reflect in private. Its boxed pews remind us that people have worshipped on this site for centuries.
St Mary’s monuments are a rich source for family historians and the church houses the largest collection of virgin crowns in the country. These crowns, of wood and paper, made in memory of people who were born and died unmarried within the parish, are the last survivors of an ancient custom that is still alive here.
Yet the church looks forward too, serving the school and the wider community. In return, this rare and unusual Grade 1 listed building, and its shady churchyard are cherished and maintained by many people who value the spiritual and historical focus this beautiful and peaceful spot provides for the village.
