Service times are advertised on the Notice Board by the church steps and in the Wykeham Benefice News and The Link. We have both Holy Communion and Morning Praise services (less formal and without Communion) usually at 09.30 on Sundays. We aim to hold other celebration services – such as Mothering Sunday or Harvest Festival – in the afternoon to make it easier for families to attend. Our current mission is to make the church open and accessible to the whole village for other community events. If you would like to use it for an event, please contact one of the Church Wardens in the first instance.
The church boasts many fine historical architectural and decorative features. The restoration and upkeep of the building and churchyard, as well as its mission, services and format, fund raising and events are the responsibility of the Parochial Church Council, which meets four times a year to resolve and manage these issues. We currently have two vacancies on the PCC, so if you feel you would like to get involved and bring new ideas or suggestions to how the church can play a more active role in the community, you would be very welcome to join us!
