Ladbroke is near to the Guide Dog breeding centre and is frequently visited by one of their retired brood bitches who lives in our village (she had 45 guide dog puppies before retiring!)


Our Building

Ladbroke church is Grade 1 listed and set in a conservation area with a thatched house next door. It is very photogenic viewed from the footpath in the adjacent field.

Music and Worship

We have 5 bells, they are rung most weeks and the last full peal was in December 2016 by a visiting team of "peal-baggers".

Our bell ringers practice on Tuesday evenings and would love others to join them. They ring for the family service , weddings etc.

Visiting ringers should contact the tower captain if they would like to come and ring the Ladbroke Bells.

Organ

With very few exceptions the 3rd Sunday in the month is a BCP service.


Groups, Courses and Activities

We have a homegroup that meets fortnightly to study the bible and pray together
