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). Please feel free to email an enquiry to avoid disappointment.
Parking is available on ‘Madron Green’, a tarmaced area west of the churchyard and main (north) entrance. Hard by the lychgate, there a gate that 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.
We have a hall in Heamoor, attached to St Thomas Church, which is available for regular bookings at only £10 per session. Ring or email Caroline ( 01736 369123 or email@example.com) to make an appointment to look at what’s on offer by way of toilets and kitchen facilities.
Social events will be updated for 2019 shortly
Building and other Projects January 2019
We are still pointing parts of the exterior walls (only the tower has been done so far) but have had no further progress on getting the large east window repaired – it seems that buildings in a worse condition have been getting the grants, which is only fair.
Our new south entrance glazed door has been a big hit, as has our enhanced lighting.
Keith & Doreen, Rona &Andy have done sterling work in the churchyard, planting and tidying.
