St Laurence Church in East Harptree has its origins in the 12th century and contains many fine features, stained glass and wall paintings.
The church has long standing connections with the local community and is currently the focus of Project Newton, an initiative to carry out urgent repairs, improve the environment of the churchyard and provide opportunities to get involved in church life. Particularly strong links exist with East Harptree Primary School, Harptrees History Society and East Harptree Environment Group.
The church is part of a United Parish with West Harptree and Hinton Blewett, which produces a monthly Parish News magazine communicating information about the church, community groups, activities and more. If you’d like to receive the magazine please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
