The Church buildings are fascinating. St Edmund’s Church itself is just over 100 years old. It is a grade 2 * listed building. The parochial hall was built first and for some years was where worship took place. The Church now seats just over 300 people and contains more than a dozen stained glass windows which were installed in the middle of the last century.
The bronze first world war memorial was dedicated in 1921 and the memorial side chapel which seats 30 was completed in 1925. The large stained glass window above the altar in the East window was installed in 1950 and features the last supper and the key words “My peace I give unto you”. The organ was repaired in 1986 and with a Yamaha grand piano provides the choir with high quality musical accompaniment. A new wooden cross with the words “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46, verse 10) was made by Jon Vogler and installed under the East window in 2012.
