St Andrew's church, Jevington

Grade I listed

The church consists of a west tower, nave with north aisle, chancel with squints, and south porch.
The tower dates from Saxon times, around 900 A.D. It was originally an early defensive church tower, which was intended as a place of refuge as well as for worship. There were originally four bells in the Belfry but three were sold in the 18th century. The remaining Bell his of the Brede group dating from 1456-1486 and still hangs on its original frame.
There is a Saxon arch between the tower and the nave and on the north wall opposite the main door there is a Saxon sculpture, believed to represent Christ thrusting a cross shaped sword into the mouth of the Devil. The sculpture was discovered in 1785 and dates from around 950 A.D.

The north aisle was added in the year 1200, there is an unusual arch spanning the aisle and may have been there to form a Chapel with dividing screen. The nave roof is an example of an original Tudor wagon roof with hammer beams and king posts. The windows date from 1500, but the glass is 20th century.
The chancel was built around 1230. All the stained-glass is 19th century.
There is a large bas-relief monument to Charles Rochester and his wife, and a black marble tablet to Nathanial Collier, a former rector.
The organ is a single manual by Abbot of Leeds from 1870. Previously there was a barrel organ from the 1830s.

The church was restored in 1873 when the porch was added.
