History Of St Martin's


We are a family friendly church that balances  a central church tradition in a beautiful ancient place of worship. We encourage a mixed economy of worship and hope that there is something for everyone. We have a range of different worship services and our monthly evening services vary between Sung Evensong, Holy Communion, Healing services, Tea & Cake with Songs of Praise etc. 

We are building up small groups and social activities as well as service to the wider community and those in need. 

Do drop in or telephone to find out more.  

We aim to welcome you as Christ welcomes us all.

St Martins Bell Ringers

The Bells are rung regularly for Sunday Service at 09:45 am, at Weddings and for National Occasions.

Practice night is on Wednesday from 8:00 - 9:00 pm.

Campanology (Bellringing) is the Art and Science of ringing bells using a rope and wheel. It is a distinctly "English" pastime, originating in the British Isles, but in the last couple of hundred years has spread to the colonies, and can be found as far afield as New Zealand and Texas

A major bell restoration was carried out in 2010-11 when the original bells the oldest being cast in 1621 were augmented to 8 by the addition of 2 treble bells cast at Whitechapel Bell Foundry in March 2011. The Bells were rededicated by the Bishop of Dover in December 2011

The Bells are rung regularly for Sunday Service at 09:45 am, at Weddings and for National Occasions.

Practice night is on Wednesday from 8:00 - 9:00 pm.

We need more ringers, come and meet us on Wednesday, have a go?.
