St Martin of Tours

church interiorWe have many visitors to our church and we consider it an important part of our mission to keep it tidy and unlocked every day in order to welcome people.

Our church is fairly small, aisled and dates back to the 14th century, although an even older font was discovered buried in the churchyard.  The building is listed as Grade 2. The Henry Willis organ was installed at the same time as major restoration during the 19th century. More about the church architecture and history.

Following an appeal launched in 2000 a considerable amount of work was undertaken, which included:

  • restoration work on the tower
  • installation of a new east window
  • a new Clipsham stone floor that replaced thermoplastic tiles over concrete
  • electrical heating
  • easy wheelchair access

Lyndon's welcoming sign for picnics on the church lawnVisitors are welcome

Lyndon is a tranquil place with St Martin’s its spiritual heart.  The church is a wonderful place to sit awhile and perhaps to contemplate things that make you sad or glad.

The church green contains a welcoming notice to “stay awhile and enjoy your picnic”. 


We have one service of Holy Communion a month and also a service of Morning Prayer, taken by the Churchwardens, on one of the other Sundays. Find the next Sunday Worship Service.

Our traditional candlelit Carol Service on Christmas Eve attracts a large congregation of over 80 people and is a most atmospheric experience. Our major fund raising event is our annual Harvest Service and Supper followed by a Harvest Auction which is also well attended.

Our mission statement: to serve the community in any way we can.
