About Us

At St Edmund's we like to think that there is ‘always a warm welcome’ - and if you visit we hope you will find this to be true.  We're a small but lively church and the building is rarely empty as it hosts all kinds of events and meetings as well as Worship. 

Celebrating its centenary as the Daughter Church of St Peter's in 2004 considerable fundraising, by a great many local people as well as through grant funding,  has led to major improvements to ‘Our Little Church in the Meadow’.  This includes rewiring; new heating and lighting; a completely new roof, and the installation of mini-kitchen and WC. The footpath to the church has been re-instated and improved for disabled access. Further improvements are ongoing and planned but heavily dependent on voluntary help and donations.

We are part of the Upper Tas Valley Benefice and welcome worshippers from across the benefice as well as Forncett End.  If you'd like to worship here, you'll find details of Services and Events on this page on A Church Near You and also on both the church notice board in the porch or in the pages of the Upper Tas Valley Benefice Magazine. Refreshments are usually served after our services when they are running normally - although as elsewhere in the Church of England they are currently suspended because of coronavirus covid-19.

We also welcome enquiries for holding small meetings (up to about 24 people), for which projection facilities can be made available.  Do please get in touch if this is something you'd like to do
