Welcome to Crudwell Church
Our church and people
We hold a variety of services, delivered by ordained and lay ministers, as well as churchwardens, and we are always mindful of the needs of different generations, including the use of a play area at the back of the church.
Our congregation is often boosted by visitors, and following services we enjoy socialising over refreshments. We welcome anyone who is a member of any church to take communion with us.
Our church and community
The local community shows its commitment to the church by giving time and resources to support our work. The annual Strawberry Fayre is our main fundraiser, running for a whole weekend in July. Virtually everyone in the village takes part in some way, making shortbread, serving teas, manning stalls, performing in musical events etc.
We could not maintain the high standard of housekeeping in the church without a team of volunteers from the village, who clean, arrange flowers, maintain the clock and tidy the churchyard.
We have strong links with the school.
Our church building
Although the church is Grade 1 listed and of Norman origin, in 2009 a disabled toilet and a food preparation area were added to the church, and some pews removed, to allow more flexible space for informal worship, concerts, coffee mornings and group meetings.
All Saints is proud to host several weddings each year, many of which are followed by a reception at The Rectory Hotel next door, with whom we have a very good relationship.
As many of the couples who are married here live outside the parish, we encourage them to come to services in the run up to their big day, and we are delighted to get to know so many happy people.
We are delighted to announce that the Strawberry Fayre is back on this year! It will take place on the 8th and 9th July.
In previous years we have seen £6,000 raised for church funds. The money helps us to maintain the fabric of All Saints Church.
In the past the money has helped to raise funds for:
We are indebted to the following organisations for providing grants towards this work, which has minimised the amount of money that the church has had to find.
