The Trinity Season


= All our benefice churches are now OPEN once again =

But before you plan a visit, do please click on the top item in the list of LATEST NEWS, just to the left of this paragraph, as not all our churches will be open all the time. Full details are given there. We do welcome visitors back to our beautiful and ancient heritage buildings, and trust that, whatever the reason for your visit, you may find an area of peace, beauty and stillness.

Be still for the power of the Lord
Is moving in this place.
He comes to cleanse and heal,
To minister His grace.
No work too hard for Him –
In faith receive from Him.
Be still for the power of the Lord
Is moving in this place.


If you are in need of any sort of help, please use the CONTACT button at the top of this page, and your message will be conveyed to the most appropriate person as soon as it is picked up – certainly the same day.

If the matter is sufficiently urgent and you would rather telephone, then please ring Lionel Holmes on 01647 440113.

We can put you in touch with a member of the ministry team, should you wish to discuss church or personal matters, find out more about online services or just chat.


Let our churches inspire you!

The four parish churches and one chapel that comprise this benefice are all cultural icons of the communities they serve and are of considerable heritage importance.

Much more than that, however, except during the present emergency, they are also living centres of Christian worship, offering peace and solace to all who enter them, and the Good News of Jesus Christ – as relevant as ever to the needs of a turbulent world.

So please come and explore our website and find out more.
