St Michael's, Kirk Langley

St. Michael’s Church is a Grade 1 listed building. The major part of the church dates back to 1320 but some parts are thought to be Saxon, dating back as far as the 800s. Major renovations and alterations took place in 1839, and again in 1885. Leaflets exist giving a brief but detailed description of the church and its layout. In addition, in 1995, NADFAS (National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Society) made a complete record of church furnishings. The Church Warden is the custodian of this book and it may be borrowed from him for viewing.

Our services last for approximately 1 hour.  There is an area for children to play and refreshments are served at the end of the service.  All are welcome.
