Opening & closing times

We are again open for private prayer and for visitors and the Crossing, Chancel and viewing of the Shakespeare graves is possible.


Our usual opening and closing hours are below. They are always subject to the demands of a busy parish. We quite often need to close at fairly short notice, not usually less than one week's notice (e.g. for funerals). On the day concerned, these times are always listed on the Church notice board in the Churchyard and on the homepage in Today's services and Today's Opening/Closing times.



Our core opening hours from Monday 4th April to Sunday 30th October are 

Monday & Tuesday          11.00 - 12.45  

Wednesday                      11.00 - 12.15

Thursday & Friday           11.00 - 15.45  

Saturday                           11.00 - 15.30

Sunday                             12.00 - 15.45


Our core opening hours from  Monday 31st October to 24th December are 

Monday & Tuesday          11.00 - 12.45  

Wednesday                       11.00 - 12.15

Thursday & Friday           11.00 - 12.45

Saturday                           11.00 - 15.30

Sunday                             12.00 - 15.45


We will be closed for the week beginning 12th December whilst our local schools rehearse and hold their Christmas Services each day.

Like most people over Christmas and New Year, our volunteers will be enjoying a welcome break with their families and friends. The Church will be closed to visitors from 24th December to 5th January 2023.


These times depend on services not taking place. Do check our homepage for up to date information and as we also depend on volunteers to staff the church for opening there are a few rare ocassions when we cannot raise sufficient volunteers to open.
