Woodlands Church


There is a massive Saxon/Norman font which, according to tradition, was used at Knowlton church (a henge church two miles to the west) and moreover was said to have been used for baptisms by Saint Adhelm.

The church of the Ascension hosts its share of the Quintet Sunday and festival services including: -

Ascension Day, forty days after Easter Sunday when the Quintet parishes gather here to celebrate. The service begins with a procession, includes a visiting preacher, and is followed by a social gathering with cheese and wine.

Stations of the Cross. Our parish church has a series of the Stations of the Cross. These fourteen pictures illustrate the way of the Cross, from Christ’s condemnation to death to his burial. A simple service of prayer and meditation following the story is held on Friday evenings in Lent.
