HERITAGE: The Grade II Listed Church Building has much to offer including many stained glass windows including a rose window dedicated to the regiments of service men who served in WWI, with accompanying side windows of War and Peace. Among many beautiful stained glass windows reflecting bible stories, we also have a stained glass window by Charles Kemp (William Morris connections). Thanks to a recent HLF grant we have restored much of the building including the windows on north and south side of church. Heritage Tours are now available with volunteer guides on Tuesdays from 10am - 12 noon and on Thursdays 2.00pm - 4.00pm.
CHURCH HALLS: The large and small halls are well used and provide a much needed community facilities for a number of local groups. and can be hired for private events.
