The small Church of All Saints is nearly a thousand years old, a great example of a medieval Church and of historical importance, with a beautiful snowdrop covered churchyard in the spring. The Church is built on a Bronze Age burial mound – an Anglo Saxon church could have been on the site even earlier than this. The earliest part of the building today is the nave and south aisle – dating to Norman times. In the 13th century, the Church was re-modelled, and a tower and chancel were added. Over the centuries, further work and refurbishments were carried out to create the Church we see today. After nearly 1000 years of existence, the Church at Cadney is still very much alive and well within the village. All Saints is now within the benefice of Brigg, Wrawby, Bonby and Worlaby – we have one vicar, who serves all five Churches, and divides his time among us. Although it is a very old Church, without power or lighting, it is still actively booked for Weddings, Baptisms and Funeral services – some of them carried out in candlelight. Our candlelight Midnight Mass service is magical and the Christmas Eve Christingle service begins with carol singing around the village with mince pies and mulled wine. We are also now part of North Lincolnshire Council ‘Heritage and Church Trails’ scheme – 15 old and interesting Churches in the area linked on a tourist visitor trail.
The Church is open every day of the year, from dawn until dusk and has two services a month on the first and third Sundays at 11.00am we have many visitors, often ramblers, cyclists and people researching their family tree along with fundraising events too. We hope that people passing through our village can enjoy All Saint’s Church for many years to come .For all information on services and events, please click on the ‘Calendar’.
