The Church and the Village
There are strong links between the church and the key organisations in the area. There is a close working relationship with Lingfield Primary School; the clergy take regular assemblies and go in during the school day, as well as school pupils coming for tours of the church and regularly attending Messy Church. The church also has a good relationship with Lingfield College (formally Notre Dame School), again with regular visits to the school and leading assembly's at the Prep School..
There are close links between the church and residential and care homes including Charters Court and Charters Village; the Vicar performs regular Eucharist Services. See calander for these. Clergy and authorised lay people take Communion to its residents and there are warm relationships between church members and the staff.
Staff and residents from Cavendish House, a residential home for adults with learning disabilities, come to church.
