Thanks for the honest review. I hope you come back and join us again, we have various priests who preside over the service, so if one doesn't suit you, one of the others surely will. I will pass the comments on.

We got married in the beautiful church before we had children and we was so impressed by the lovely architecture of this historical building, the [lack of] parking was the only issue we had but other than that it’s a great church
