All Hallows Church

Broadwoodkelly Church dates mostly from the fifteenth century (though some parts of the building are some 200 years older). Consisting of nave and south aisle, it boasts a charming 1523 original stained glass window in the north wall and a fairly massive sixteenth-century octagonal font. The whole building was extensively but sympathetically restored in 1869. The organ, built by Telford & Telford of Dublin, dates from 1849 and was originally built as a house organ for Lord Thynne at Haynes Park in Bedfordshire.

Services

The church is Anglican, and the tradition is middle to high church. Everybody, whether communicant or not, is made very welcome at our regular Sunday services. These are entirely BCP and normally take place at 1000 on the second and fourth Sundays in the month, and at 0800 on the third and fifth. While the Rectorship remains vacant, however, there may be some disruption to this pattern.
