This is an organisation that exists with the objective of bringing together all those in the local community who have an interest in maintaining this ancient Church and wish to help in raising money for this purpose. The Committee that runs it is a sub-committee to the Main Church Committee and its chariman, Elizabeth Wordsworth, is appointed by it. The Friend's Committee runs its own programmne of events (see diary of events) and decides how the money raised is to be used. Any projects proposed must be agreed by the Main Church Committee. A concert by the Freshford Singers was held in the Church on 9th June A COFFEE MORNING with Bring and Buy was held in the Memorial Hall at Hinton on 11th Januart.
All services are taken by Revd Mike Taylor unles specified otherwise
