Becket 850

Welcome to the celebration of Becket 850.

This year marks the 850th anniversary of the martyrdom of St Thomas a Becket, to whom our church in Warblington is dedicated.

During this year we aim to bring our church further into the consciousness of the community so that it can be recognised as an example of faith down the ages, a jewel of history and architecture, and as a place of worship, peace and contemplation. We welcome your presence with us throughout this year and beyond.

The programme of events is still being confirmed at this stage, but in order to see what we have planned so far, please see the list of events below.

A further click on an individual event will then enable you to see more details of that event. This section is still under construction and details will be added as they are confirmed.

Please note that for events held in St Thomas à Becket church, there is some car parking outside the church, or please park in Church Lane.

The toilets are public ones in the Cemetery.

If you would like to help us by donating to our charities and our fund to build a toilet, we would be very grateful. Please note, because of intermittent Wi-Fi coverage, we cannot accept cards for this, but your cash is very acceptable!

We very much look forward to welcoming you.

Andrew Sheard – Rector

Julie Price – Associate minister

Jo Northey – Pioneer minister

All events take place in the church of St Thomas à Becket, Church Lane, Warblington PO9 2TU, unless otherwise stated.
