Getting here

A tiny church, unlocked for visitors. It is a little gem, tucked away in a hamlet and with a friendly churchwarden called Carole who loves to know that visitors appreciate the church and find it welcoming. It is in the corner of a village green, fronted by the meadow and a pond, on a bend in the road just after a pub called the Wheelhouse. I have noticed that the pub seems to be open on Sunday lunchtimes, though other opening times are a bit of a mystery it seems - not unlike our service pattern which is very typical of rural churches just to keep you guessing! Do ring and ask if you would like to come though as you would be most welcome.  

The font is a very attractive feature and it faces you as you open the door as a font should - the entry to Christian faith through the waters of baptism is firmly in your eyeline as you enter this ancient place of worship. It is set into the archway of what was once a door on the north side of the church and just above it a delightful arched window and stained glass. There are also ancient wall paintings to fathom and evidence that once there was a rood screen.

It is an intimate and beautiful church to worship in and its services work into a pattern with the neighbouring church so that there are services most Sundays but alternating between the two places - Nedging and Naughton.
