Parish of Hempsted with
St Mary de Lode and St Mary de Crypt
St Swithun’s Church
St Swithun’s is where our work with children and young families is based
– not only through involvement in the local Hempsted School through
Open the Book, but also through our monthly Family Services and
occasional holiday activity days.
Members of the church family are also involved in village social events,
including the monthly charity lunch, and annual St Swithun’s Weekend
celebrations. We are very lucky to have a modern well-
with kitchen next door.
On a Sunday morning (1st and 3rd) we worship at 8.00am with a Said
Eucharist in traditional language, and a Sung Communion service at
11.00am – all are welcome. Our fine team of bell-
every week calling us to worship. St Swithun’s Church is usually open
from 9.00am until dusk each day.
