Over and Nether Silton

These two villages have one congregation which shares  two churches.

Over Silton is our “summer church” because it  sits in the middle of a cow pasture which can become very muddy in the winter (and sometimes in the summer too!).  Also it has no electricity and hence no heating or artificial light.  Worship by candle light is very atmospheric but it does get rather cold. So from Harvest Festival until Easter we worship in Nether Silton which is more accessible (and better resourced).

Information on both villages and their churches is here
