Welcome boardThe Parish Church is open daily; normally from about 9 o'clock until about 4.30 in winter (5.30 or later during the summer) and we welcome visitors.

The tower is open at Easter, then from Monday 4th May until the end of October half-term, normally from 10.30-4.30 Monday to Friday and 11.00-3.00 on Saturday, except when the church is in use for weddings, funerals and other services etc.  The tower is not open on Sundays.

Stewards are on duty when the tower is open (and, occasionally, at other times) to answer questions and to help you make the most of your visit. The chapel is always available for private prayer and reflection and has a range of interactive prayer ideas to help you take advantage of this opportunity to reflect and pray. The whole church is accessible, except for the tower, the only access to which is a steep, narrow, spiral, stone stair with more than 150 steps.

baptism 2Confirmation is the Anglican Church's way of affirming for ourselves the promises made on our behalf by parents and Godparents when we were baptised as babies.

If you are considering confirmation or baptism (for a child or for yourself) or sea baptism in July, please contact us to talk it over.


The next course starts on Wednesday 9th September at the Parish Hall and takes place over seven evenings.
