Known Locally as
"the Cathedral in the Hills."
On behalf of the people of the Parish of Burton Dassett I warmly welcome you to our website and hope that in due course we will have the pleasure of meeting you in person.
Here you will find all that is going on in and connected to the Parish of Burton Dassett.
All Saints' is a most beautiful and captivating Norman church. Totally unspoilt, it was built in the 12th Century and in 2009 underwent an enormous restoration project to preserve and restore some of its medieval wall paintings. It is a very spiritual and tranquil place, of historical and architectural interest.
All Saints Church is part of the active vibrant church community of the Parish of Burton Dassett which is part of the Dassett Magna Group of Parishes.
Whether you have been to church before or are coming for the first time you are assured of a warm welcome!
Dassett Magna Group
The Dassett Magna Group of Parishes was formed in April 2007, when the parishes of Farnborough and Avon Dassett with Fenny Compton joined together with the neighbouring parishes of Burton Dassett (which includes Knightcote, Little Dassett, Northend and Temple Herdewyke) and Gaydon with Chadshunt.
Toilets and Taps!
All Saints’ Church is a very popular venue and is used regularly for concerts, weddings, christenings, funerals and a variety of church social and community events. The church is the largest church within the Dassett Magna group of parishes. The group consists of 4 rural parishes with small fixed pew churches which greatly restricts the format and size of services and events held in them. The size and open format of All Saints’ church makes it an ideal venue for all large Church group gatherings and celebrations.
However, at present it lacks toilet and servery facilities. These facilities can help churches to survive and the lack of such facilities is increasingly found to be putting people off from attending church services and events.
Toilets allow churches to become more welcoming to worshippers, especially the elderly and those with young children. Servery facilities enable a wider hospitality through being able to offer refreshments. Both are essential for churches like All Saints’ wanting to increase use through hosting a variety of worship and local community events such as concerts. Without this accommodation the church is finding the holding of such events is becoming increasingly difficult.
The church and more importantly the PCC (Parochial Church Council) has therefore initiated a project to provide a servery and toilets aptly named “Toilets and Taps” and is in the process of seeking funding.
The intended provision of facilities will mean that the whole of the Dassett Magna group will have an excellent venue - larger than any in the vaccinate, available for all the communities and geographically central to all - for fundraising, social and church events. The intended provision of facilities will not only serve the local parish and community but be used by, and help maintain the churches for, the 8 village communities the Dassett Magna Parishes serve.
