Mission Statement. We intend to continue to publish and thus to continue to keep updated this  / Twitter website and micro-blog throughout 2014 and for as many years to come thereafter as it will be possible for us to do so. This website will be intended by us to be an information source about matters which would be of appropriate interest to anyone at all who wishes to take an interest in the Church at Lillingstone Dayrell as well as an interest in the maintenance of the Lillingstone Dayrell churchyard.

This website will develop around the regular publication of readings, Services details, sermons and funeral eulogies which originate from this beautiful church-in-the-fields which has now come to mean so much to us since both of our parents and several other members of the Robarts family have been buried here over the past century since the time of the First World War.

May we both wish every one of you a very merry Christmas in 2013 and a Happy and Prosperous New Year throughout 2014.

With our Best Wishes and all Greetings for this Festive Season.       

Michele and Timothy Robarts.
