Something SPECIAL is about to take place in church.

The church will receive its biggest makeover for generations.

This video presentation shows how the back of the Church will be transformed to create a new flexible and accessible space for services, activities and events. This will be used not only by the church but also by the local community.
Work will start on 18th October and last about 6 months. The Church will be closed for that time but services and activities will be taking place around the village in different locations. We’ll keep you updated via emails, newsletter, and by Facebook and the Church website.

We will also be fundraising for this work so look out for opportunities to join in and support us.

At St Mary Magdalene, we aim to be a welcoming, accessible and inclusive church, putting God, the Divine, at the centre of all we do.

The blessing of our church building and grounds is that spaces for quiet contemplation, meditation, and prayer can always be found in the centre of our village.

We seek to be generous with our welcome, our time, and our creativity, supporting one another and the wider local community in the many different ways that, between us, we have to offer.

We are fellow travellers with Christ on a never-ending journey and welcome any to come and travel alongside us for however long they wish. We don’t have all the answers, and we don’t expect others to either.

Come explore with us, question with us, sing with us, laugh and cry with us, drink tea and eat cake with us.
