Fire at All Saint’s Church, Mudeford

“The fire at All Saints’ Church in Mudeford is a devastating event for the whole community.

“For over 150 years, Mudeford Church has been at the heart of the village, both physically and spiritually. The Church building is extensively damaged, but the people who are the Church will continue to meet and to serve the community of Mudeford as they have done before.

“There will be huge sadness at all of the damage which the fire has caused, but there will also be hope, and a determination that the Church building will be restored, and once again be a centre of worship and celebration and community.”

“I would like to thank the fire service for their quick response. We are supporting the fire service as they carry out an investigation into the cause of the fire.”

Canon Gary Philbrick
