Our Churchyard

Our churchyard was once overgrown but has been transformed to create a peaceful space and one that wildlife thrives in, we have bird boxes, an insect hotel, and plants which encourage butterflies. We also have several hedgehogs making their home here.  We have lovely displays of snowdrops, daffodils and crocuses in season and the churchyard has won several awards for its appearance and for its nature friendliness.

There is a Blessing Walk which is a journey around the churchyard where we use different areas to focus our prayer. We also ask God’s blessing on ourselves and our world. There are 6 stations each reflecting a different aspect of life. We invite you to begin at station 1 and follow the markers around the churchyard.

We also have a dedicated Garden of Remembrance for the burial of ashes, and plots can be reserved here in advance.

The church will be open Monday to Thursday from 10.30am – 12.30pm if you would like to come in and say a prayer.

    Hello, do you have a listing of those buried in your churchyard.
    I am particularly interested in any and all Dodd’s, Holland and Sargeant. The principal characters I am researching are the Dodds (two or three units) that were living on or around Little Drayton Common. My Gran used to live at 18 Buntingsdale Road and I was with Mum and Dad at 9 Church lane (1946-1952).
    Would appreciate any help you could offer.
    Sincerely.
    Michael Sargeant

      There is an old burial register of who is buried in the churchyard. This is kept in the Shropshire Archives in Shrewsbury. We are working on a plan of the churchyard but this is taking some time to complete as it is a very complex job. If you pop down to shrewsbury the archives are next to the library near the castle.
