Messy Church

A joint activity with St.Mary's Podington, takes place around six times a year. This is a time of crafts, Worship and a "Bring & Share" cold buffet; for all ages however we do request that children are accompanied by a responsible adult. Nothing planned at present, but maybe in time for Pancakes. Held in Wymington Memorial Hall.


St Lawrence is a medieval church built in 1380 and is mentioned in all the guide books of England's best churches including the Simon Jenkins' 'Thousand Best Churches'. The tower, containing five bells, is surmounted by a spire which rises to a height of almost 100 ft. There are fine examples of monumental brasses, one of the founder's tomb containing the remains of John Curteys and his wife, Albreda. A more famous one is that of Sir Thomas Bromflete, a knight in plate armour, who was "cup bearer" to King Richard II. There are three "Doom" paintings over the chancel and adjacent arches and there are traces of other medieval wall paintings around the church. The pews are of black oak and medieval some of which have unusual pull-out extensions.

Regretfully the church is normaly kept locked outside of Church services, but is open from 1:30 for a couple of hours on the first Saturday of each month, for quiet prayer or just a look around.


The entrance to the church involves a few steps. Wheelchair access to the church is possible, but if possible please notify us in advance (01234 720262 or e-mail as it requires the removal of a 'kissing gate' by the Hall, and we have some ramps that are used on the steps. There is no dedicated parking for the church, but there is normally space to park on Church lane; and the Memorial Hall, next to the church, allow us to use their car park when they aren't using it.
