First glimpse of St Kenelm’s

After the upheaval and dust of the last six months of work inside St. Kenelm’s Church, the end is in sight of what has turned out to be a 30-year project to safeguard and enhance our beautiful building.  All that remains to be done is the final fix of our hidden kitchen; the connection of mains water and drainage, and finally, the installation of our new reredos depicting the life of St. Kenelm in a mosaic of Venetian glass.

In due course, we will post full details and pictures of all that has been achieved. But for now, some pictures that were taken at last Sunday’s morning service and the Enstone School Christingle, showing how beautiful the building looks, particularly in the evening when the new lighting scheme comes into its own.

But don’t take our word for it, come and see it for yourself!  We have services throughout the Christmas season [for details, see here] and on Sunday 7 January 2018 at 6.30 pm, we will be holding our postponed Carol Service, when you can not only enjoy the beauty of the building, but here the Benefice Choir leading the service, and even enjoy one last mince pie and glass of mulled-wine!

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
