Getting here

The Church has a small congregation that is welcoming to visitors; Services as listed. We have seasonal Bible study courses. Besides services, the church is generally open from 1:30pm on the first Saturday of each month when parishioners are on hand to be a guide, and to discuss church features and life. Regretfully the church is normally locked at other times, but access can be gained by contacting the ChurchWardens.
Wheel chair access is possible from near the Memorial hall, prior notice is advisable, as a "kissing gate" has to be removed.

The building in which we worship was built by John Curteys around 1377AD in the Decorated style, and so presents an unusually unified late medieval structure. It retains many features of historical and artistic importance. There are wall paintings of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, including a Doom over the chancel arch. John Curteys’ canopied altar tomb lies between the chancel and south chapel. Protected by the chancel carpet, are brasses of national importance showing Sir Thomas Brounflet, cup-bearer to Richard II, in the armour of the period; and his wife. A brass of the former rector, John Stokys, is in the Lady Chapel. The beautiful nave pews date back to the fifteenth century and these medieval pews have 17th century ‘draw out’ seats. The spire is about 25m high, with a bell tower containing 5 bells. Above the porch is a Priest’s room accessible from an inside staircase.

The churchyard, which contains the war memorial, can no longer take burials, although ashes can still be interred, and the Parish council’s cemetery is adjacent.
