All Saints' Church is the smallest and oldest church in the benefice of Crick, Yelvertoft and Lilbourne, in the Diocese of Peterborough. It's situated beyond the modern village, at the lower end of Station Road close to the River Avon (CV23 0SX). The building is Grade-1 listed, and the earliest part - the chancel - is late Saxon. It's a lovely, simple church with seating capacity for about 100.
The church is open throughout the day, every day because we strobgly believe that it is there for the community and for anyone who wishes to visit it. There is a lot of information on the notice-boards in the porch and inside the building. If you're researching family history, we have a detailed list of all known graves and their location in the churchyard, full copies of the registers, and a lot more information available.
Services take place weekly. Over a month, the pattern is:
First Sunday: Morning Praise at 9:30 am. Short and modern, with coffee and croissants to follow.
Saturday before second Sunday (which is not always the second Saturday!) S.A.I.L. - Saturday Afternoon In Lilbourne, at 3.00pm in the village hall. This is a very informal session for children and their families. It includes a Bible story, a suitable hymn/song, craft activities, and refreshments. S.A.I.L. is led by our curate, Revd Jo Ognanovic, with help from a team of church members.
Second Sunday: Morning Praise at 9:30 am. This service is lay-led, and informal. Refreshments served at the start. No hymns.
Third Sunday: Holy Communion at 9.30 am, using the updated 'Order One' liturgy
Fourth Sunday: Evensong at 6:00 pm. Refreshments follow.
Fifth Sunday: When applicable, a United Benefice service at 11:15 am, in one of the three churches of the Benefice. Full meal to follow.
Our church is a very welcoming, friendly community and we would be so happy to share it with you!
