Irnham Church

Church of St Andrew, Irnham
Church of St Andrew, Irnham

Irnham is still set out as our medieval ancestors would have understood. St. Andrew’s church dominates the top of a small tree-lined hill; to its south side is the medieval Irnham Hall (restored following a fire in Victorian times) and, beyond, two of the original three fishponds that would once have been reserved for the squire, the priest and villagers. Clustered around the base of the church’s hill are cottages and a few larger homes.

A service is held at St Andrew’s every Sunday morning, starting at 11 am. Our worship may be summarised as traditional, middle-ground and dignified. Our praise veers toward the muscular, being neither Evangelical nor Anglo-Catholic. We use the 1662 Book of Common Prayer for Matins and Common Worship for Holy Communion.

Corby Choristers’ Christmas Concert

After a really happy evening on 5th December in St John’s Church, we are delighted to announce that the splendid sum of £460 was given to St Barnabas Hospice in Grantham.

We thank all those who attended the concert and all those who gave generous donations. Thanks are also due to those who provided and served the refreshments and helped in any way.

If you interested in joining our group, we resume rehearsals on Monday, 11th January at 7 p.m. in the Methodist Chapel.
