HERITAGE OPEN DAY – 14th September

Visit our church from 10.00am to 4.00pm on Saturday 14th September.  All Saints’ Church is over 800 years old and Grade II* listed.  As one phase of social, political and church history succeeded another changes were made, and on Heritage Open Day on 14th September you may trace the impact of history on the building at the heart of what was so long a small village.

We’ll have displays of pictures on the church’s past and our historic books will be out on show, with an expert to answer your questions.  At 10.30am there’ll be an illustrated talk on the church’s history, and guides will be on hand to take you round the stained-glass windows and also round the many memorials of different styles and eras.   Children may enjoy following the Church Trail.

We’re looking forward to a talk/demo of bell-ringing at 12.00, and at 2.00pm members of our Choir will be providing a mini-concert of music.    Then at 2.30pm two distinguished local historians will lead a walk of discovery round the churchyard – always a popular treat.

You may also like to continue exploring the church at your leisure.  Light refreshments are available in the Open Door Coffee Shop opening onto the Orchard, and also in the church.

But don’t forget – you’re always welcome to visit the church, which is usually open.
