All Saints, Hannington

A pretty church on high ground with the village green in front of it. A church which looks well worth visiting. The Benefice website is at http://www.baughurstbenefice.co.uk/ and helpfully gives a postcode for sat navs. This makes churches much easier to find and is the method I use.

The lych gate has a box labelled ‘Walk maps’ but these had sold out. The noticeboard only mentions Sunday services. The church was locked which is a shame as it is surrounded by the village housing, as well as a business next door and I would have thought that it wouldn’t have been too hard to get someone to unlock each day and keep an eye open. Looking through the windows it shows a plain, well cared for, interior. What does keeping it locked say to people? Is this an exclusive club, or has God departed? Who does the Church belong to – the gathered congregation or to everyone? I rate this as very poor.
