OUR THREE CHURCHES

We have a very broad range of worship going on every Sunday and during the week in our three churches. You might also want to see the weekly news sheet for any alterations or additions to the usual run of services

ST MARY,

ALDINGBOURNE

St Mary's is a Grade 1 listed building which has served over 900 years of Christian worship. There is evidence of mediaeval wall paintings and post-Reformation texts in the nave and the pre-Reformation altar slab lies broken below the present high altar.

St Mary’s is the largest of our three churches and is a popular church for weddings.

St Mary’s worship has a modern, unfussy feel.  Hymns are sung and a sermon is preached by one of our clergy team.  Communion is celebrated every Sunday and all are welcome to receive it.  There are refreshments served after the service at the back of church.  

 

Accessibility

The church is fully accessible to wheelchair users via the west door. There is a hearing loop for the hard of hearing and large print orders of service and hymn books available.  There are also toilet and kitchen facilities at St Mary’s.

ST MARY,

BARNHAM

Barnham Church was recorded in 1086 in the Domesday Book.  It is a Grade 1 listed building.

Barnham church celebrates all the rich symbolism of the modern catholic tradition.  The main act of worship is the Mass and there are servers, and weekly use of incense.  Hymns are sung, a sermon is preached and generous refreshments are enjoyed at the back of church after the service, often spilling out into the idyllic country churchyard. There are currently no toilet facilities at Barnham Church.

 In 2008 a weekly Roman Catholic Mass started following the closure of their chapel in the village and this service is held in the church on Monday mornings.

Accessibility

The church is accessible (across a grassed area) to wheelchair users. There is a hearing loop for the hard of hearing and large print orders of service and hymn books available.

ST GEORGE,

EASTERGATE

St George’s Church is a grade 1 listed building and is situated in a farmyard with views across the fields.

St George’s proximity to the local church school and it’s place in the centre of Eastergate has meant that the congregation is full of young families as well as the less young worshipper too!  The worship is simple and inclusive, often tailored for all ages, balanced with traditional Prayer Book services too.

There is a flourishing Sunday School and there are a large number of young families attending.  St George’s, like all of our churches, is growing!

Accesibility

There are toilet facilities and a kitchen.  The church is fully accessible to wheelchair users. There is a hearing loop for the hard of hearing and large print orders of service and hymn books available.
