St. Martin's Church Desford

  • Welcome to St. Martin's Desford


    St. Martin's Craft Group

    A very friendly group meets on Thursday mornings in St. Martin’s church between 10.00am and 12 noon for handicrafts, tea, coffee with delicious snacks ( supplied by our wonderful waiters, Dennis and Mick) and always friendly chat – all are welcome.

    The various items knitted are sold for church funds or donated to hospitals (for example premature baby clothes, twiddle muffs and lap blankets for the elderly).



    St. Martin's Visit the Kiki Wong Resaurant

    Here are some photos from the Kiki Wong vist for the Chinese New Year

    The St. Martin’s Church Desford “Estates Group” and partners went to the Kiki Wong Chinese restaurant on Wednesday organised by Ray Harwood. The meal was superb and the Lion Dance was amazing, all celebrating Chinese new year. Our “Estates group needed some R & R after many hours in 2019 erecting and dismantling marquees, moving tables and chairs etc. etc. for several events. Batteries recharged we are now ready for 2020. New volunteers are always welcome – many hands make light work.





    Our search for a new Rector has moved one step closer as the vacancy has now been
    advertised on the Diocesan website and the Church Times.

    Closing date was the 7th February and interviews will take place on 17th March.
