The Church is sending out a card with the Christmas Services on it.Look at the photograph of the Church. A powdering of snow emphasises the beauty of All Saints. A millennium of building is there. The porch built by the master of Victorian church architecture Teulon is in the foreground and behind the medieval nave with the Norman tower rising at the back. All this on the same site where the Anglo Saxons built the first church in this village over 1300 years ago.
