The Church consists of a nave with a bellcote and short chancel.

The walls are of coursed lias stone. The roof is slate with cable copings.

The bellcote to the West gable has set-offs and a cross over.

The main door is in the West gable end and has a two centred arch which is chamfered, as are the jambs.

This is a double door with ornamental strap hinges and there is a light stone mullioned window with plate tracery above it, and a trefoil stone window above that.

The side walls have four pointed arch windows with straight chamfers.

 

The church is officially designated as a Chapel of Ease and was erected in the 1860’s to meet the needs of the Broadoak working community.

Plough Sunday
We shall be holding a PLOUGH SUNDAY service on Sunday 15th January in Loders Village Hall. This is a very ancient festival, revived by the Victorians. Traditionally it is celebrated on the first Sunday after Epiphany, January 6th. Often the plough was decorated and drawn through the streets to be blessed in church along with the seed to be sown. This was thought to ensure food for the coming year. The following day, Plough Monday, was the first day that work in the fields recommenced after Christmas. We plan to compromise by being in the Hall. ◆ 12.00 Coffee ◆ 12.30 Plough Sunday Service ◆ 1.15 Ploughmans Lunch Everyone is really welcome to join us in this traditional start of the farming (and horticultural) year.
