The Church of St Peter and St Clare
Your Parish Church is St Peter and St Clare in Fenny Compton
On behalf of the Christian community in the parish of Avon Dassett with Fenny Compton I warmly welcome you to this page which will give you a little information about where and when we meet. I hope that in due course we will have the pleasure of meeting you in person. Many people have never been to a church, and we know it can be daunting to walk into one of our buildings. People who attend a church regularly can also feel strange going to a new church. However, whether you are new to the area or have lived here for some time; you are new to faith or have been away and are interested in coming back; or you are just wanting to explore faith and are interested to find out what it's all about you are assured a warm welcome.
The church of St Peter & St Clare serves the parish of Avon Dassett with Fenny Compton, and is part of the Dassett Magna Group of Parishes. The Dassett Magna Group was formed in April 2007, and consists of the parishes of Farnborough and Avon Dassett with Fenny Compton, Burton Dassett (which includes Knightcote, Little Dassett, Northend and Temple Herdewyke) and Gaydon with Chadshunt.

During COVID-19, we all struggled to keep connected. The one positive out of all this is that we at Dassett Magna created a digital church so that we could meet together socially as well as for worship using Zoom. Unfortunately, social distancing and not being able to attend church isn't something that only applies during pandemics. There are various reasons why people aren't able to attend church in person and due to the success of our Zoom Digital Church we have added it to our regular service pattern.
