Little Gidding Church is difficult to find, but unforgettable when found.

Perhaps you ‘pass this way’ because of the poetry of T.S. Eliot or George Herbert, an interest in the Ferrar family and their model of a lay religious community, or you are captivated by the movements of King Charles 1.  It could be that you’ve come upon Little Gidding by chance, whilst enjoying the peace and beauty of this gentle part of the countryside, or because this was a quiet place with space for your group.  Do spend some time in the church.  For a while, put aside your preconceived ideas, and even your camera or phone.  Sit for a while, and allow God to speak to you in the peace. 

It is a secluded place in remote Huntingdonshire countryside which has borne witness to turbulent times over a thousand years with serenity, simplicity and peace. Nicholas Ferrar and his family formed the first Anglican community here in 1625 after the religious changes of the English Reformation. King Charles I visited in 1642, and sought refuge in 1646. The poet T.S. Eliot visited in 1936, and was moved to reflect upon the Church and its history in the last of his Four Quartets: Little Gidding.
