Built in 1140, Billingsley Church has many ancient features, including two ancient yew trees.  The church is extremely beautiful and peaceful, and is open every day of the year for tourist visits and quiet reflection

St Mary’s is hoping to produce a display of knitted or crocheted poppies in the church as part of their Remembrance Day Commemorations in November. Poppies can be produced in red and black with or without green leaves using any pattern; there are no rules! Completed poppies can be dropped off in the church from now until November 1st or collected by prior arrangement. For further information contact Sue on 07434 882845. Suggested patterns can be found by following the link below or they can be provided if requested; however feel free to use any pattern you may have or even create your own.https://support.britishlegion.org.uk/…/knit-or-crochet-a-po….

 
St Mary’s is taking part in a photography competition promoted by our insurers, Ecclesiastical. We are looking for a single sentence about why Billingsley Church is special, accompanied by a photo of the church that illustrates this. Be as creative as you like! We will put all of the photos on display in the church and will select one to enter into the competition. Please either email your photos to d.r.poyner@aston.ac.uk or leave them in the church or post them on our Facebook page or send via Messenger. Closing date is the end of September. Happy snapping folks!
