Cheriton

Cheriton

St Michael and All Angels was built during the 1100.s it is situated on a small hill, almost certainly a prehistoric burial ground. The Church is the largest in the Benefice with a seating capacity in excess of 200. There are 119 people on the Parish electoral roll and the regular congregation at Sunday communion averages 35 adults and 10 children.

The congregation encompasses all ages including young professionals with families, the early retired and the elderly. The recent Mission Audit showed the church to be a valuable asset within the community. St Michael’s has a lively All Age service on the first Sunday of each month, an enthusiastic choir, a permanent organist and a peel of 6 bells with an active band of ringers. The fabric of St Michael and All Angels, Cheriton is in good condition having just undergone a renovation programme and the churchyard is maintained by 26 village volunteers.
