All Saints, Dunsby
The Church of All Saints is a Grade 1 listed building believed to date from the 12th century. The church has carillon type bells which are rung by our stalwart bell ringers before services and comprise a peel of 8 Hannington chimes donated in 1891. The organ is a restored Henry Bevington & Sons instrument built in the 1880’s and restored and installed into our church in 2017, purchased with the help of fund raising and grants. It has a pleasing appearance and an attractive tone.
The church is classified as a Festival church which means we hold a few services during the year, including Harvest Festival and Remembrance Sunday. The Carols By Candlelight service on Christmas Eve, is always very popular and very well supported.
The village hall provides an ideal venue for social activities. Fundraising functions for both the village hall and the church, through suppers, film nights and teas, are well attended.
A versatile choir – The Wednesday Singers – hold their practices frequently; they raise funds for the church and other good causes and are often asked to sing at weddings. It’s not a church choir but it is run by the church organist.
