The church, which is kept open all day, is dedicated to St. Lawrence. In the earliest days it belonged to St. Oswold’s Priory in Gloucester, from which a chaplain was sent out to minister to the people. The present building is partly 14th century, but was mainly rebuilt in 1858. The belfry holds a ring of 8 bells. A team regularly ring for the main services, and also for special occasions. In 1996 a churchyard survey was carried out, when all memorials and their inscriptions were recorded, a copy of this is in the church and a map and index of names are on the back of the notice board in the car park.
There is a committed and adaptable congregation with strong community links. There is enthusiastic lay support to run services and refreshments are served in the church after some of the services. There is a good choir that sing throughout the benefice.
The church supports benefice mission work and other charities.
Sandhurst has a wonderful village hall right opposite the church. Find out more at:
