A very spacious building which lets in plenty of light , unusually all built in one period to a very high standard . The screen and choir stalls are very special and worthy of close inspection .

A wonderfully made church with lots of wooden parts (f.e. The roof) just a stonesthrow away from the beaches. It’s a very cute little church!
