• Following the end of the second lockdown, we are now open again for public worship.
  • Remembrance Day

    Due to the current restrictions on large gatherings because of the Coronavirus, we have decided that it would be unwise to hold big Remembrance Day services in their traditional format this year.  We appreciate this will be disappointing for many people as it is such an important opportunity to pay tribute locally to those who have lost their lives in war in order to secure our peace today.  There will be a simple, short Act of Remembrance in each village as follows:

  • From 1st September, our church buildings are re-opening for public worship.  It won't look quite the same as it did before due to the various measures we have put in place to keep you safe (see attached PDF) and the pattern of services is slightly different (see the list of services on our calendar)  But we will be able to meet together to praise our almighty God.  If you haven't given church a go for a while, you are very welcome to come and see .....

  • If you have been having a sort-out during lockdown and would like an opportunity to find a new home for things, why not join our socially-distanced table-top sale and help us raise some funds!  Please see the poster for details.

  • You are invited to afternoon tea on Sunday afternoons between 2 and 4pm during August on Napton village green

  • To go along with our virtual flower festival, here is an invitation to come and view one of the lovely gardens featured.

  • Members from around the Group have put together this wonderful display of their gardens and flower arrangements for us to enjoy!

  • St Peter’s Wormleighton - Notes for June 2020 Thinking about what to write Alan Hone my good and much-missed friend and sometimes religious mentor (alongside some other local worthies), lately from Priors Hardwick and now I hear residing in the depths of rural Norfolk, once (allegedly) submitted a Parish News article that he had written a few years earlier to see if anyone noticed. Alas, this somewhat unorthodox measure of the effectiveness, impact or memorability of our painstakingly written pieces had the disappointing outcome that NOBODY NOTICED or COMMENTED!

  • St Peter’s Wormleighton - Notes for July 2020 A sense of humour goes a long way One of my more obvious - and perhaps for many who know me – most annoying characteristics is a tendency to make excessive use of modern means of communication - e-mails in my case and not social media. Covid-19 and its associated lockdown allied to the fact that my normal flow of translation projects has dried-up, have all given me (in theory anyway) an excessive amount of free time to devote to contacting my many friends.
