St Ethelbert’s Church, Littledean was built in the 14th century. It is located on the edge of the village opposite the school, at one of the gateways to the Forest of Dean, about a mile South of Cinderford.
There is a sound reinforcement system with hearing loop, a kitchen area for serving refreshments, and a toilet with facilities for the disabled. A hand rail and extra step have been added to the porch entrance to allow easier access for all.
Five years ago the six bells were removed and re-hung with two extra bells, they are rung on a regular basis.
St Ethelbert’s is part of the village Local Ecumenical Partnership (LEP), with the United Reformed Church and the Salvation Army. There are village breakfasts, lunches for the elderly and many youth activities led by this team.
A service is held at St Ethelbert’s most Sunday mornings. These will vary mainly between Morning Prayer and Holy Communion. Most months, one Sunday will be a joint service held at St John’s, Cinderford.
Service times are normally either 9.30 am or 10.30 am.
