Welcome to official website for the parish churches of Hentland and Hoarwithy!
Hentland is the older of the two churches and dates back to at least the 16th century.
It is dedicated to St.Dubricius, who is accompanied by a hedgehog
in the stainglass window in the north wall. The Church, despite its age,is
in fairly good shape, but recently saw the installment of a replacement organ.
This however, has not seen the end for its predecessor, whose pipes still
show the fine artwork that went into them.
Work on conservation of the Chancel and the Walker Organ is expected to commence very soon.
Hoarwithy is an italianate church, which is dedicated to St.Catherine.
Not as old as Hentland, it stands with great pillars and a gold mosaic dome,
with Christ in Glory, in the centre, giving his blessing.
Hoarwithy church featured on the BBC's "Songs of Praise"
and Presenter Pam Rhodes has written a book of her favourite churches,
Hoarwithy being one of them!!
We thank God that we have been able to restore the Church Tower and are now about
to embark on applying for grants to repair the roof, and make improvements to the heating and the footpath to the church.
Fundraising for restorations is ongoing - if you are able to help then please get in touch. Many thanks!
