Benefice services resumed in August and are currently following a reduced monthly Autumn pattern of a 10am service at Ditcheat on the first Sunday of each month and a 10am service at East Pennard on The third Sunday of each month. Canon Hendy is conducting a short service on all other Sundays at 10am via Zoom. If you have a computer, laptop or I-pad you can join in. Just contact one of the churchwardens for details.
All Saints’ Church East Pennard dates from the 14th century and is a grade I listed building.
The tower contains a clock dated 1788, and five bells which are reputed to be the heaviest peal of five in existence. The restoration of the clock face and clock is now complete, and the clock will be chiming soon. The Reredos has recently been restored and has some amazing tiles.
Inside the church is a Norman Font and several stained-glass windows, also an altar screen and monuments to the Martins and Napiers.
All Saints' Church belongs to a group of churches known as The Fosse Trinity Benefice which serve the communities of Ditcheat, Alhampton, East Pennard and Pylle parishes.
