Earliest records of our Church date from the thirteenth Century. The Chancel is from this period; the tower, chancel arches, and the nave of four bays are from the fourteenth Century. The tower was rebuilt or altered in the fifteenth Century and the font dates from the sixteenth Century so we are a mix of different Centuries!
Our Church seats approximately 200 in the nave with additional seating in the choir stalls and we are one of the larger churches in the group. We had major works in 2014/2015 including electrical and improvements on our heating.
We have a regular Communion service at 9.00 am on the second Sunday of each month and an Evensong on the fourth Sunday of each month - this is at 6.00 pm in Summer time and moves to 3.00 pm over the Winter. Like other parishes, we also have special services at different times in the Church calendar. You are welcome to any of our services and we would love to see you.
Coming up at Stetchworth:
22nd April Annual Meeting: This will be at 4.15 pm and will follow on from our Evensong service which is at 3.00 pm. This is a chance to hear what has been happening over the past year and the Parochial Church Council's plans for the coming year.
