St Philip and St James’ church is approximately three miles from Oswestry and is situated in the small hamlet of Morton, close to the Montgomery Canal.
Pant is served by two Parish churches, with the village north of Station Road being in Morton Parish with the southern part of the village being in Llanymynech.
The community is widespread in a predominately agricultural area. The fields surrounding this Victorian church offer a peaceful reflective place for visitors. The War Memorial is within the closed churchyard and is a place of tranquillity.
There is access to the church through the main front door with provision for wheelchair access.
There is a cloakroom in the churchyard with wheelchair access.
Within the church there is a good sound system and hearing loop.
Parking is on the side of the lane outside the church with additional parking available when required.
There is no hall in the village of Morton and the church is very active in hosting events and groups. Regular activities include the Coffee and Cake Club on a Tuesday at 11.30am. Morton choir meets on a Friday afternoon. Lent lunches and Agape feature in Spring and Harvest evensong is accompanied by supper. Other activities tend to take place on the nearby sports field, which is a community facility.
A Parish Magazine is published every month and is available to any person who wishes to have one. Spare copies are available from inside the church porch which is always open.
There are also 3 noticeboards: 1 outside the church; 1 inside the church and 1 in the church porch, all of which provide useful information.
