A Norman church built in the late twelfth century with a fine Norman arch.  Do come and visit us where you will be assured of a warm welcome. We have a Communion service most Sundays at 9.00 am or 10.30 am for the major festivals.  There is also a monthly Village Praise service, which is followed by tea/coffee in the nearby village hall where you can have a chat and get to meet people.  During the summer months we hold Evensong at 6.30 pm on the first Sunday in the month. 

Details of services can be found in the Village Newsletter which can be accessed via and on the noticeboard by the lych gate.

Our Vicar is the Reverend Geoff Mumford who can be contacted on 01904 707716.

The parish is within the New Ainsty Deanery and a member of the 'A6:4'* Group of Parishes.

* The parishes are located along the A64 trunk road; as it happens Acts 6:4 is an appropriate reference point: "..while we, for our part, will devote ourselves to prayer and to serving the word."
