Abington Church - its building and history

The church has been at the centre of Abington life probably since the twelfth century -  the earliest parts of the building -the lower part of the tower and the south doorway, date from this period.

Sadly Abington Church is not mentioned in the Doomsday Book and the earliest record of it occurs in 1224 when Isabel de Lisors, Lady of the Manor, presented Peter of Irchester to be Vicar.

The church has changed much over these 800 years and we are privileged to be the custodians of the church in this generation and want to share it with our local community, both as a splendid building, a place which celebrates much of the history of Abington and the focus for Christian life and worship in the present day.

We encourage you to visit the building – it is open Monday - Friday 9.00am - 4.00pm from May to the end  September - and spend some time, quietly thanking God for this wonderful building and perhaps bringing your concerns and prayers.
