Binsted Church - the heart of our rural community
Due to the small size of our church building, for as long as social distancing is required, please book one of the limited number of places in advance. Only about 12 people (depending on number of couples) can be present with 2m physical distancing. When weather permits, chairs and a speaker and distanced seats will be provided so that more can attend even without booking.
St Mary's Church Binsted, whose weathercock is our village website icon, has since the 12th century been our well-loved place of worship, and of our christenings weddings and burials. At present it has a service on the first Sunday of every month, together with special services such as Rogation when blessing is asked upon the spring crops with a pilgrimage across the fields, Harvest and Christmas Carols. It is also our gathering place for concerts, village meetings, talks.
