Church of England Diocese of Portsmouth Freshwater

About Us

Lovely St Agnes Church nestles beneath Tennyson Down in the beautiful Freshwater Bay area of West Wight, close to the historic Orchards Grocery store and the ever popular Piano Cafe.

Whilst the always welcoming, regular congregation of St Agnes is small, a service is held most Sundays, often at 6pm and more often than not, with the choir present. Even with the smallest of congregations, the sound of the choir and the organ at evensong and evening communion is beautiful.

Everyone is welcome at St Agnes, whether you want to join us in worship, sit and listen to a service or even just to take some time to sit quietly in the Church and listen to the sounds of the sea and the countryside.

The church is open everyday for visitors and prayers and quiet contemplation.
