St Lawrence, Sedgebrook

In the centre of the village, adjacent to the Manor, is our Grade 1 Listed church dedicated to St. Lawrence.

Although its roots are in the 12th century, with nearby Newbo Abbey, its costruction was carried out between then and the 15th century, most of which is evident in the building we see today. It retains its Norman heritage both in the columns and arches of the north arcade and also the font, but the remainder is 15th century gothic.

Constructed from Golden Ironstone, mined locally at Denton, with Ancaster stone dressings, seating in excess of 150 people.

We have a small dedicated congregation and PCC - looking to grow God's Kingdom.  Jenny Stuart is a Licensed Reader and also our PCC Secretary.  Jenny offers local pastoral care, helps with assemblies at Allington School and Messy Church. We have a vision of Welcome for everyone, we are very tahankful for all the help and support we receive.

Our weekly attendance is small, but during Christmas, Easter and Harvest, we do generate a larger congregation, especially when the younger people can get involved.   The Church is open everyday from 10am - 4pm, we have a Chilcrens Corner and a bookstall where you can buy 3 books for £1 or 50p each and they are refreshed regularly.

We also have enthusiastic supporters, who are willing to apply their skills when required and the church is used for other functions, such as concerts and talks.  We have Afternoon Teas, the latest one is supporting Dove Cottage Hospice , our September Afternoon Tea is always in aid of Macmillan Cancer and we also have Bring & Buy sales - supporting the church
