From Medieval to Modern
Making your Parish Church fit for another 500 years
This isn’t a view that many of you will have seen. One of our first jobs was to make sure that the Church was watertight.
Then we had to see to the Tower.
So we have made a promising start. We want to make sure that your Church is just right for the needs of the parish: for Sunday morning worship at 10 o’clock, with fine music, for your weddings and for your baptisms. And, of course, for funerals.
The Church isn’t there only for services; it’s open during the day, everyday, so, if you would welcome some peace and the opportunity for quiet reflection and prayer in a medieval setting - knowing that countless numbers of people over the centuries have found solace there, please feel free to enter this rather special place.

Unless there is a Benefice service at Hauxton or Newton (that can happen at holiday time, for example), there will be a service here on a Sunday morning at 10 o’clock. How will you know? From the Parish Magazine, our website, or on the notice board in the porch.
We have other plans: first, to build a servery and lavatory.

Then we would like to renew the seating and re-decorate the interior.
