THE ORWELL GROUP
All Saints is the Parish church of Barrington. It is the largest church building in the Orwell Group and serves a semi-rural community of some 1000 people. The Orwell group of parishes work together led by one priest, and events such as 5th and 2nd Sunday rotate around the group while some other services are also shared (eg Healing, All Souls, and the various Easter services etc.). This offers a diversity of approaches and parts of congregations can be found moving around the parishes. Each parish has a Eucharist one Sunday in the month and at least one other service in the morning or the evening.
ALL SAINTS - BARRINGTON
Currently All Saints has a Eucharist at 8.15am on the 1st Sunday of the month as well as a 6pm Evening service, a 09.30am on the 3rd Sunday of the month and an All Age at 11am on the 4th Sunday. Barrington also hosts Messy Church at 3.30pm during the week. Messy Church is a service aimed at young families immediatley after school rather than on a Sunday that they may find difficult.
Services are in the main Common Worship or All Age with the monthly Evensong being BCP. There are refreshments after the main services during the morning. Self catered Refreshments are also available for visitors at other times. The church is well heated.
The clunch church stands at the east end of the 22 acre village green. Although there is evidence of an earlier 12th century building, it mostly dates from the 13th and 14th centuries with medieval roof, pews and south door. The Barnack stone font is thought to be a relic of an earlier Saxon church on the site. Also of interest is the 16th century parish chest, a 17th century bier, fascinating corbels of local people, the staircase to an earlier rood screen, the fine Jacobean pulpit and the late 15th century Bendyshe chapel off the north aisle with its reredos by Sir Ninian Comper. The vestry off the south aisle replaces a pre-reformation chantry. The west tower contains six bells. The chancel was restored in Victorian times when its present furnishings were installed. All Saints' Church is a grade 1 listed building.
Barrington village has one of the largest village greens in Britain. The Church is situated at the east end of the green and the lovely thatched Royal Oak public House is situated at the other end of the green. The church is open daily during daylight hours. The churchyard is open at all reasonable times.
