St. Mary's and St John’s are the Church of England (Anglican) churches serving our parishes and welcoming everyone to worship and activities.
We are engaged in the life of our communities and are delighted that our beautiful buildings are here for the benefit of all.
Our churchyards are places of peace and beauty, where you can sit and enjoy the sunshine, flowers and nature all around – please feel free to wander in.
Almighty God, who after the creation of the world rested from all your works and sanctified a day of rest for all your creatures: Grant that we, putting away all earthly anxieties, may be duly prepared for the service of your sanctuary, and that our rest here upon earth may be a preparation for the eternal rest promised to your people in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
5th December 2020
St Mary's Church planned to host our 5th Festival of Angels in November 2020 ─ an event for which we are well known ─ but the pandemic got in the way!
Not to be beaten, we want you to enjoy our online Festival of Angels with some of the imaginative creations from past years ─ 2004, 2006, 2009 and 2014. We hope that they will bring back happy memories for you, and maybe inspire you to make an Angel for our next festival?

St. John’s dates back to the mid-13th century and is used not only as a church but also as a community facility. We always need to fundraise to keep it maintained and we would be grateful for any contributions to help preserve the building.
