A Churchwarden writes:

As a relatively new member of Southleigh’s church, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to “sing its praises.” It is a beautiful church in a peaceful and tranquil setting, and those who meet there together to learn more of God’s purpose for us and hear His word, are a warm, friendly and caring group of human beings, who welcome newcomers with open arms!

Come and join us!

The Year in Southleigh

Snowdrops in the Churchyard

The church provides a focal point for the whole community at important times of year. As well as our usual Sunday services, we welcome everyone to our festivals which include Christmas and Easter services, Mothering Sunday, our Harvest festival and lunch as well as Remembrance Sunday. We also host services and events for the whole Mission Community from time to time. Church members take part with the whole village in the popular Southleigh Fair, which takes place around St Lawrence’s feast day in August.
