The  Community

The Parochial Church Council (PCC) has been keen to encourage the use of the church for wider community events.

The church hosts a few concerts a year and an annual Snowdrop Weekend to showcase the churchyard, which draws large numbers of visitors from across the area. Other events have included Strawberry Teas and various photographic and art exhibitions.

Being the church with the most significant Saxon remains in the area, it has two to three hundred visitors a year. Donations from such visitors have helped with conservation work, which has been extensive throughout the last decade.

Members of the Church are active participants in the Shropshire Historic Churches ‘Ride and Stride’ annual event and the PCC also supports various charities, including particularly RIPPLE-Africa.
