There has been a church on this site since the 12th Century. Parts of the present church are Norman, Transitional, 16th Century with restoration in 1874. The wooden screen is dated 1655 and the north aisle and the south porch were added in 1875. The lychgate was built in 1962.
It is set in the village of Litchfield, some four miles north of Whitchurch. It is one of three churches in the Parish of Whitchurch.
There was a time when the A34 ran through the village and past the church. Now, however, the church is in a peaceful cul-de-sac.
There are two regular services each month, on the first (usually Holy Communion) and third (usually Morning Prayer) Sundays at 10.00 am with additional services for festivals and Remembrance Sunday. We usually have Evensong when there is a fifth Sunday, at 18:00
We use the Book of Common Prayer, the King James Bible and Hymns Ancient and Modern New Standard.
