ALL SAINTS’ CHURCH, LUDDINGTON
The 19thCentury church is situated in the centre of the village and is accessed along an avenue of lime trees adjacent to 209 Luddington.
Although a small village church it is one of three within the Parish of Stratford upon Avon, the others are Holy Trinity, the Parish church, and Saint Helen’s at Clifford Chambers.
All Saints’ is fortunate that it is able to hold services each Sunday in the year with the help of stipendiary, retired clergy and lay people. The vicar of the Parish is Rev. Martin Gorick. The Associate Priest Rev. Steven Bate. Rev. Margaret Sweet has responsibility for the two village churches. The current times of services each month are:-
First Sunday Holy Communion BCP 9.15 a.m.
Second Sunday Holy Communion 9.15 a.m.
Third Sunday Holy Communion 9.15 a.m.
Fourth Sunday Holy Communion 9.15 a.m.
Fifth Sunday Parish Communion at Holy Trinity 10.30 a.m.
A warm welcome is extended to all who wish to join us at any of these services.
We have an average weekly attendance of circ 20 throughout the year with greater numbers attending for Festivals at Easter, Harvest Festival and Christmas. The church flower team excel at these times and fill the church with beautiful displays. The Harvest Festival service is followed with a village Harvest Lunch held in the Village Hall. We are fortunate to have the choir from Holy Trinity who join us at the Harvest service and for the Carol service before Christmas.
The church is currently only open at times of services, but it is hoped to extend the opening times, especially throughout Festivals for people to visit for quiet prayer or to view the beauty of the church.
