Traditional liturgy and uplifting music

Monthly Services

BCP Matins with Holy Communion

Turkdean holds a traditional Matins service with Holy Communion at 10:30am on the second Sunday every month (except August.)

The simplicity of All Saints’ 12th century Norman building and the familiar rhythms of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer are complemented by music, mostly of the 16th and 17th centuries led by the Turkdean Choir.


Music from the 16th and 17th centuries

All Saints mounts celebratory musical services two or three times each year, usually on a ticketed basis through (to ensure that we do not overflow our seating capacity!)

Recent services have included Monteverdi’s Messa a quattro voci (SV190) Palestrina’s Missa √¶terna Christi munera, and William Byrd’s wondrous Mass for Four Voices of 1592.

All Saints also mounts a Floral Choral Evensong every Summer, a Solemn Eventide Communion for Maundy Thursdays and an atmospherically candlelit Carol Service.

Join us at 6:30pm on Sunday 23rd June for a special Benefice service to celebrate the floral fecundity of our Cotswold gardens.

Led by our outgoing Priest-in-Charge, Rev Alycia Timmis, whose last service at Turkdean this will be we will celebrate the glories of our gardens with floral displays from each of the 8 parishes of the Northleach Benefice and with the aural delights of the Turkdean Choir.

Lavish refreshments will be served in the Nave after the service as usual and all would be most welcome from across the Benefice and even further afield!

“It is rare to hear such extraordinary music in such an intimate, simple setting. The history really envelops you. Thank you so much.”

Emma Smith
