Church of England Diocese of St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich Exning with Lanwade

Exning St Martin

The church of St Martin, Exning dates from the late 12th Century. 

It has regular worship at 11 am on 1st, 2nd & 3rd Sunday mornings. When there is a 5th Sunday in the month a joint service is held at 10am with members of the congregations of St Philip with St Etheldreda, and the neighbouring parish of St Mary's, Newmarket and St Agnes, Exning. The location rotates through these venues.

On the 4th Sunday the worship takes place in the Exning Community Church Hal. adjacent to St Martin's, where breakfast is served from 9am and informal worship starts at 9.30am.

It is a Grade 1 listed building, is situated in the centre of the village of Exning in a conservation area, in a large churchyard. The approach to the church from the West end through the churchyard is up a steep slope, reflecting the elevation of the church above the rest of the village of Exning. Until recently the church was clearly visible from the A14 Newmarket bypass, but this view has now been somewhat restricted by the erection of sound-reducing barriers on the road. At night the church is floodlit, the floodlights being a gift in memory of a local landowner’s wife.
