Our church is nearly 700 years old and has a rich history. It is most famous for being the church where John Newton was curate, and where he wrote the hymn Amazing Grace for a sermon on New Year’s Day 1773. However the church also has links with Henry John Gauntlett, the organist and songwriter who wrote the tune for “Once in Royal David’s City”, and Thomas Scott, a friend of Newton’s and author of “Scott’s Commentary on The Whole Bible”. Our History section provides information on the building and the people associated with it.
