St Mary’s Summer Opening - Sundays 14.00 to 16.30


Church Opening begins again on Sunday 7th April and then every Sunday afternoon until the end of October. 

 We need people to volunteer to be at the church so that visitors to the village can come and have a look at this

beautiful Grade 1 Listed building.


For anyone who doesn’t know what we do, we ask for volunteers from the church family and local community to help by sitting

in St Mary’s on Sunday afternoons between 2.00 pm and 4.30 pm. There is the added attraction that this year we will have toilets in the building! This may attract more visitors.


We have a Guide Book to help you and everything will be explained for anyone who hasn’t taken part before and would like to see how it is done.

 Please contact Revd Patricia either by email:

pmrobinson51@gmail.com or telephone 01565 830 595. You can also sign up on the ‘Church Opening’ rota in the Church Information Book for any Sundays you are able to offer help for.

Thank you.
