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.
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.
people crowded in to St Leonard’s, last Friday (21st) to celebrate
Christmas through the traditional service of Lessons and much-loved Carols. Throughout the service the church was lit solely
by candles which added to the warm and welcoming atmosphere.
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.
