Poppies of Remembrance

In 2022 and 2023 Farlington residents rose to the occasion and knitted beautiful poppies to decorate the church gates in the week leading up to Remembrance Sunday. We still have those poppies and will putting them on the gates this November. But we still have lots of gate and railing space which could use more poppies. If you would like to knit one or more poppies they will be very gratefully received. I will collect them or you can leave them on the font, just inside the church door. If you need a knitting pattern, please let me know and I will get a copy to you.

With thanks,

Sally Wright, Churchwarden

On Sunday (24th) there will be a Harvest Communion service 10.30am.

Pop-up Tearoom – a Fantastic Result

You, the Farlington Community rallied round to support Your Church and what a wonderful result it was and how lovely it was to see so many people from the village. The Tearoom over the Bank Holiday weekend made a very rewarding profit of £934 and we sold 29 packs of the 2023 Christmas cards (in August!). We would like to thank everyone who made this achievement possible whether you baked fabulous cakes, ate fabulous cakes (or did both) as well as getting the hall dressed for the occasion and set-up and cleared away each day.

On behalf of St Leonard’s church, it is a big THANK YOU from us both

St. Leonard’s starts to re-open

St Leonard's Church

Good news!

At long last we are able to unlock the Church doors and invite you to spend some time inside for private prayer and contemplation.   Due to the extra cleaning regimes we are required to put in place, St. Leonard’s will initially be open every Tuesday and Saturday between 10.00am and 4.30 pm.   We look forward very much to welcoming you all back. 

 The Churchyard continues to be cared for and remains open everyday for you to visit and spend some quiet time in reflection there.

Do You Have Difficulty Getting to St Leonard’s?

St Leonards mobility scooter

We are well aware that the length and steepness of the church path can make it very difficult for some people to get to services at St Leonard’s. Someone in Stillington has very kindly donated to the church a nearly-new, robust mobility scooter. This is now available for every Sunday service from about 20 minutes before the service is due to start.

Get to the church gate, or thereabouts, and the buggy will do the rest. A member of the church will be with you so you do not have to be an expert in using mobility scooters.

St. Leonard’s Church

St Leonard's Church

St Leonard’s church has been a feature of Farlington village for over 900 years.   It is a small rectangular building; the nave leading into the chancel without any structural division.

The church is substantially a 12th-century structure touched by the fingerprints of countless generations down the years.   Major alterations have seen the addition of buttresses and windows of various dates.
