All Saints’ Church commands a prominent site in the village. It started life as a royal chapel to the adjacent royal Palace or hunting lodge in the 11th century. The earliest part of the church is the nave, built in the 12th century and over time the Church has been altered to what is seen today.

We have a highly talented adult choir who lead our monthly choral communion service. Most of the choir also sing with the Bernwode Singers. The church is used as a venue for occasional services and concerts by both Brill C of E school and Ashfold School, Dorton. The church hosts various successful concerts during the year including the Bernwode Singers and Music in Quiet Places. We have a peal of 6 bells and an active group of ringers. We are lucky to have many volunteers who clean the church, mow some of the grass, arrange flowers etc, who are not necessarily active church goers. Villagers and visitors alike appreciate the fact that we have a policy of keeping the church open during daylight hours.

The vacancy

As you will be aware, Priscilla has now retired and will be leaving the benefice at the beginning of February.

At that point we will start the process of finding a new priest to fill the vacancy.   It can take time to find the right candidate for the post (before Priscilla arrived, the previous vacancy had lasted  some 15 months).

In the meantime Jenny will be supporting the benefice together with an array of retired and visiting clergy to take our services.

If you have a question, we recommend that a Churchwarden should be the first port of call, if appropriate to your circumstances.  You can find the list of Churchwardens in Who's Who.
