Most drivers taking the short cut along Summer Lane between Exeter Road and Hulham Road would probably drive past Point-in-View Church without even noticing it.
Yet it has been there a long time, 200 years in fact and it is this bicentenary that will be celebrated between Friday, July 6,and Sunday, July 8, with a flower festival reflecting the history of the church.
Point-in-View Church was built in 1812 and is closely associated with A La Ronde, the cousins, Jane and Mary Parminter being responsible for the establishment of both buildings. The church, which once housed a small school and also provided accommodation specifically for single women, has a rich history and an unbroken record of worship. The church appears deceptively small on the outside, but has a unique and peaceful atmosphere and contains many fascinating examples of its exceptional heritage.
Today, services are held every Sunday at 11am and chaplain, the Reverend Pat Clamp, and members of the church would welcome you to join them on July 8, when the preacher will be the Reverend David Keep.
The church will be open between 10am and 7pm during the Festival and light refreshments will be available.
The entrance to Point-in-View is marked with two notice boards.
