A church on the edge of a battlefield

In its circle of trees, overlooking the Civil War battle site of Edge Hill, this church is approached up steps from the Kineton to Southam road. It is especially lovely in late spring when the primroses are blooming in the churchyard.
The building appears long, low and massive, the result of extensions over the centuries. The eastern end of the nave is from the twelfth century, the westward extension fourteenthth, the clerestory was added in the fifteenth, the charming tower in the seventeenth and the present chancel was built about 1730, when a north transept was added over a burial vault.
The transept chapel has three windows glazed with lovely sixteenth-century Italian glass. The few monuments are of good quality.

Something Less Formal

People often ask if the church could hold a more informal, easy-going, family friendly gathering where they can ask questions, explore what Faith is and where parents can relax if the children are children. It's a gathering because service speaks of formality.  

You are warmly invited to “Breakfast - food for thought” to be held on the 4th Sunday of every month

in Fenny Compton Village Hall 

We start at 10am with a breakfast of tea, coffee, fruit-juice, croissants and brioche and at around 10.30am, as we continue breakfast, we go into a very informal, easy-going family friendly, all-age faith gathering. There may be quizzes and simple colouring or a craft to ponder on if you wish over breakfast and each month we will choose a different topic to discuss which is relevant to us all.

Have a Sunday off providing breakfast and have it made and provided for you at ‘Breakfast- food for thought”.
