‘The Ringstone in Aveland Group of Churches is committed to safeguarding the welfare of all young people and vulnerable adults’.

The Parish Church of St. Andrew is situated in the High Street, opposite the Village Green. It is a Grade 1 listed building dating from the late C13. At the turn of the millennium the South Aisle floor was dug up and replaced with redundant headstones, thus providing a suitable area for refreshments after services, social events, regular monthly coffee mornings and concerts, etc.

Currently church services are a mixture of Common Worship Eucharists, Family Service, Morning Prayer and BCP Evensong. The longstanding Plough Sunday Service has now been adopted by the Ringstone in Aveland Group as a Group event and is popular and well supported; latterly all members of the wider agricultural community are invited with some success.

Church Involvement within the parish is very active with Churchwardens actively involved in village committees. This means that Village events such as the Annual Feast, take place within the church, and there are regular attendees from other village clubs at our Coffee Mornings. It is appreciated that local people to help do jobs from tidying up the Churchyard to the erection of a rope hand rail to the belfry.

There is an enthusiastic team of bell ringers, who ring on a regular basis and before services.
