West Stow with Wordwell

St Mary’s was the “mother” church before the Lark Valley Benefice was formed. It was almost derelict until the early 19th century but was lovingly restored by the Victorians and is well loved and has a friendly atmosphere.

West Stow is an active church which aims to involve the local community in its life of worship and events. Fund-raising events are held; working parties from the village aim to keep the church and churchyard maintained and cherished.


Details of services are given elsewhere on the website. We have a Holy Communion service on the 1st Sunday of each month and on the 3rd Sunday of each month we host our all-age service.

Up the B1106 towards Brandon is the charming little redundant church of All Saints, Wordwell, usually open, where two fascinating primitive stone carvings can be found and some beautiful wooden pews. The church is used for a special evensong service once a year when electricity is not a necessity!
