The Parish Church at Madron is a grade 1 Listed building and was consecrated in 1336, it has a closed graveyard which is maintained primarily by the County Council, but also a team of hard-working volunteers, the roof was re slated in 2003/4 and a new bell frame and bell restoration in 2005, there are eight bells and a good happy band of Ringers who do their best to ring for every service and practice on Monday evenings.

Opening Times:  The church is usually open on Friday mornings between 10:00am and 11am (best to check with Caroline that it will be open to avoid disappointment). From June to September we are also open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons between 2:00pm and 4:00pm.

General enquiries can be made to our Associate Priest, Jo Thomas on 07779 785962 or josophiet@aol.com or our churchwarden Caroline Somers caroline.somers312@btinternet.com

Parking is available on ‘Madron Green’, a tarmaced area west of the churchyard and main (north) entrance. Hard by the lychgate, there is a gate that gives level and step-free access for wheelchairs, buggies etc via the south porch. As this is only open for services, a gravel path takes visitors around to the north door, which is our main entrance, and only entrance during the week. Using this path is better than walking along a busy minor road.

Building and other Projects            November 2023    We  have had no further progress on getting the large east window repaired – it seems that buildings in a worse condition have been getting the grants, which is only fair.

We have now converted our composting toilet into a conventional toilet. See the ‘Links’ under ‘Media’ for the report from the archaeologist. It details the discovery of a large slab grave on the route of the pipe from the toilet to connect with the sewer near the north gate. Madron Church has a well-used kitchen area and the building has modern gas central heating with new boiler upgrade 2021.
