Parish of Titchmarsh

 

The parish church, dedicated to St Mary the Virgin, is an imposing fifteenth century building with a particularly striking perpendicular tower (an unusual feature in this county of spires) which dominates the skyline, especially when seen from the main road. A major programme of restoration has been in progress since the early 1990's, including a complete re-roofing, as well as the installation of new heating and sound amplification systems. There is a service every week, the present monthly pattern consisting of three Eucharists (fourwhen there are five Sundays in the month), one Family Service, and one service of Morning Prayer. Congregations vary between 10 and 20 adults, with a dozen children at the Family Service. In 2008 there were five baptisms and six funerals in church, and five weddings took place in 2009. Fund-raising and social events include an annual summer rete; a harvest supper; a bam dance; and a number of concerts in church when refreshments are served. In recent years the parish has paid its share in full and built up its reserves for more work to the church building.
