The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Lapworth, is a beautiful medieval building situated in the Warwickshire countryside.  The church is interesting and attractive to visitors, who are warmly welcomed.  Find out about the church and community here.

COMING SOON:
Rector’s Birthday Party – Saturday 15th June 2024 – 2.00-5.15pm.  Download Leaflet. Status as at Thursday 13th  June – The weather forcast suggests there will be thundery showers with sunny intervals and plenty of wind.  So we might get lucky with lots of sun and few showers, or we might get unlucky.  The event should be OK to go ahead on 15th June.  The badminton area will be replaced by a tent.  Other simplifications may be required.  Footware suitable for wet grass might be a good idea.
