The vicar, Rev Em Coley, said: “St Leonard’s is an active church with services on Sunday and during the week, and a range of other activities.
“We also conduct weddings, christenings and funerals through the year so many people with have family links with the church.
“We want to encourage as many people as possible to drop in. They can take a look inside the beautiful historic church, spend some time in quiet reflection or prayer, and enjoy some tea and cake.
