This charming tiny church is around 700 years old and lies in the most beautiful valley in the world, where the Cotswolds peter out into Bath. Typically around 25 people attend the main Sunday service, with usually lusty singing.

The Sunday service is at 10.30 am and lasts just over an hour.  On the first and third Sunday of the month this is Holy Communion. The second and fourth is a more informal  Morning Praise service from Common Worship sometimes followed by communion.  And if there is a fifth Sunday we all go to Woolley church, for Holy Communion.
