St. Hubert’s, Idsworth

St. Hubert’s, Idsworth

Mostly my trips are planned quite carefully as this makes best use of the time but, sometimes I just happen across somewhere that I didn’t know existed. So it was with St. Hubert’s. Having some time, I just set off into the countryside and came across this lovely church sat all on it’s own in the middle of a field.

It is well worth a look at and it is open each day. It is known as ‘The little church in the field.’ There isn’t a website as such but there is a good entry on a church near you (see https://www.achurchnearyou.com/idsworth-st-hubert/) which doesn’t have any visitor information but some history.

St. Hubert’s gets better the closer you get to it. Inside, it is as though you step back in time..

The visitors book had 30 entries for April – I visited on 25th. There is a modern doom painting on the chancel arch which was painted in 2000. It is lovely.

I found a guide booklet and a copy of the ‘Idsworth Prayer’ and there is an active ‘friends’ group which are seeking funds to keep St. Hubert’s in good repair (see http://www.idsworthchurchfriends.org/). It is a church well worth visiting with an wonderful atmosphere. There is also a ‘Prayer station’ – very simple but very effective.
