St Michael's Church
St Michael’s Church is currently without a vicar. Martin has retired and we are in an Interregnum (between vicars). During this time if you would like to arrange a service, wedding, christening or funeral please contact Jill Wright, Church Warden on 01373 813641 or the Group Secretary, Shirley Inch on 01373 812127. Both ladies will be very happy to help with your enquiry.
Church services will continue as normal. All are at 11am on Sundays apart from the 1st Sunday each month which is at 10am in one of the group’s churches. Please see the Church notice board for full details.
Your PCC has a full programme planned for 2015. We are still fund raising to help pay for the hospitality unit and toilet.
Harvest Service Sunday 27th September 6.30pm.
Everyone welcome to this lovely service, bringing any sort of produce you might have in your house (to be auctioned afterwards at the Supper)
Followed by the Harvest Supper in the Village Hall at approx 7.30pm. (Going to Church first is not obligatory). Everyone is truly welcome.
This is always a lovely relaxed meal with plenty of time to chat and catch up on village news. After supper the produce is auctioned off by local farmers - watch out - local cakes go like hot cakes!

The Church of St. Michael is situated in the middle of the village - a little to the side of the main road. Parts of the church date back to around 1200 while the north chapel was added in 1325 and the tower in 1480. The church was restored in the late 19th Century to its present form.
The Parochial Church Council
__The Parochial Church Council consists of a Chairman Rev. Martin Weymont, our new Churchwardens Jill Wright & Geoff Merriden, Treasurer Sara Corbett. Secretary Debbie Cary. Other PCC members Ian & Rosemary Williams, Millie Merriden & David Roberts. The PCC meets several times a year to discuss the general running of the Church, services, maintenance of the building and how to increase the congregation!
We have in the past few years held festivals and concerts in our church in an effort to raise funds for the church. We are also applying for grants for our new hospitality area and WC in church. These have to be matched by locally generated donations. We welcome new ideas and new people.
