Opening Times: Madron Church is open in winter months on Friday mornings between 10:30am and 12:00pm and Saturday mornings between 10:00am and 12:00pm. From July to September we are also open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons between 2:00pm and 4:00pm. In any case a key may be obtained from the Rectory (if you can find someone in – sorry. I’m often there between 1 and 2pm).
Parking is available on ‘Madron Green’, a tarmaced area west of the churchyard and main (north) entrance. Hard by the lychgate there a gate gives level and step free access for wheelchairs, buggies etc via the south porch. As this is only open for services, a gravel path takes visitors around to the north door, which is our main entrance, and only entrance during the week, Using this path is better than walking along a busy minor road.
Building and other Projects Summer 2018
In Madron church we have now installed a toilet or bio-loo (located below the bell tower) and a sound system and loop. We are looking greatly to improve our lighting levels in the church and are having to purchase a new boiler fro our heating system. We are also glazing our inner south door to improve light and general accessibility. The tower has been re-pointed and work to the south side of the church (to stop damp ingress. We are bracing ourselves for extensive repairs to the exterior of the East window (£176,000) and are still applying for a grant for this and for work to our other windows. . The sound system and the toilet have been funded by a bequest from a church member.
We have had an extensive survey of our 40+ wall memorials and a number of those which were deemed liable to fall off the wall have now been pinned.
