As a traditional country parish we seek to be faithful in our worship of God and in sharing in His mission and many centuries of loving care of countless hearts and hands have given us a priceless heritage in these ancient buildings. We aim to embrace all with His love and can assure you of a warm welcome at any of our services and hope that you will feel something of the atmosphere of prayer, and thanksgiving which is so characteristic of our historic English churches if and when you visit us..
