Wotton

 

The building

The original church on this site was built some time between 1070 and 1130 and would have consisted of a simple nave and chancel. Remains of the decorative work of this period can be seen in the 12th century diapered lintel over the west doorway.

Built in the early 14th century but with traces of a 12th century building still in evidence. The Church was altered in 15th and 19th centuries. Of historical note is The Grenville Aisle, which features stone coffins arranged like a chest of drawers. Buried here are 3 Dukes and 3 Prime Ministers. The Tower has a particularly good ring of 6 bells, as well as a full set of hand bells.

Arrangements during the COVID-19 emergency

Allthough our churches are closed and our services and other mid-week gatherings have been put on hold, we are still worshipping using the facilities of the internet.  

There are at least two ways to continue worship:

  • The Diocese runs regular live stream services.  Follow this link for more details
  • The Benefice holds a weekly on-line evening service at 6pm each Sunday.   Please see the separate notice on this page.

If you need pastoral assistance please contact Jenny.

 



The vacancy

As you will be aware, Priscilla has now retired and has left the benefice.

With that, we have now started 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.
