Churches

There are two Parish Churches within the peaceful and tranquil setting of the Lullington and Orchardleigh Parish; St Mary’s Church which is idyllically located on it’s own Island at the heart of the Orchardleigh Estate and All Saints Church in the neighbouring village of Lullington.

The Orchardleigh C of E Island Church is available for Religious Ceremonies and has an advised capacity for 100 guests.

St. Mary´s, Orchardleigh enjoys the unique setting of being at the edge of a lake with a moat around the Church. Hence it is often referred to as ´The Island Church.´ Its remoteness means there is no electricity supply to the church which means all our services are candlelit and the organ has to be pumped by hand!

The picturesque setting, the lack of electricity and the traditional services mean that many of those who visit the Church enjoy an unforgettable experience. Many of the regular congregation travel miles in order to be here, and would miss the character (and characters) of this unique church.

There is a strong link between Orchardleigh Church and Orchardleigh House for wedding receptions.

All Saints Church Lullington, is situated adjacent to the North side of the Entrance to the Estate, in the village of Lullington. The services are all traditional and enjoy the unique setting of this Church with its fine Norman Stonemasonry.

All Saints can accommodate up to 130 guests for a service, giving the option of still having a larger Church Wedding within the Orchardleigh Parish.

Many visitors attend our services and most (if not all) enjoy the experience so much that they return whenever they can. During summer months we have been known to enjoy a church picnic after the service.
