Details

This ancient Saxon chapel is the oldest church in England built by St Cedd in 654ad, it is one of the most restful and spiritual buildings in the country, a place to bring you peace and tranquillity. The old Saxon quote on the Chapel sign ‘In this place the word is revealed to you’ is certainly true.

The Chapel is situated at one end of the long distant walk ‘St Peters Way’. The Chapel is right on the coast and has stunning views a must for walkers and those keen on photography.

The Chapel is presently only open on Thursdays and Sundays for private prayer. On Thursdays there is usually a 9am Communion service, please allow 10 minutes to walk from the carpark as presently we are unable to access the chapel by car.
The car park is about ¼ mile away from the chapel, so a walk along the track is necessary.

Normally groups can be accommodated for, if booked in advance and we usually can provide talks at the chapel with refreshments and facilities at St Thomas Church in the village, and accommodation and facilities are normally available at the Othona Community near the Chapel. But due to the Covid19 situation we are unable to do this at the present.
