St Swithun Nately Scures

Welcome to St Swithun Nately Scures, the "church in the farmyard" and a veritable gem - one of smallest churches in the country.

St Swithun's Church is, sadly, closed until further notice while work is undertaken to deal with concerns over the safety of the ceiling. Services that would normally be held at St Swithun's are, for the time being, generally taking place at St Nicholas' Church Newnham.

Please use the links below, or the menu at the left, to find out more about us.

We offer a mix of traditional and more informal services with usually two morning services a month and a variety of other morning or evening worship on special occasions.

This website includes contact details, map & directions, history and descriptions of the church; photographs, information on services for “life events” such as baptism, confirmation or weddings, and details of the bells, organ and choir.

We are part of a United Parish with four other churches, and with seven further churches form the North Hampshire Downs Benefice.

The latest events and news across the communities in the United Parish may be found in the monthly newsletter “The Villager”, and the current list of events across the Benefice may be found here. The current schedule of church services is available here.
