From the Church Wardens, and all those who attend our six churches we would like to offer you a warm welcome.
Church is more than a building! It is a living breathing community of people who come together who seek. The Benefice is made up of many seekers from different denominations who support their local church and each other, this diversity is held within the baptism of the one Lord, in which the spiritual doors have opened into a relationship with God.
Being committed to that spiritual journey is to undertake the self assessment of what separates us from God – we can push Him away, we can close the door on Him however, with God’s forgiveness, an open heart and mind and with the assistance of each other we can draw closer to Him, – the one who gives us life.
All are welcome!
For God so loved the word that he sent his only Son Jesus Christ. – John 3:16
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:1
The Benefice takes its responsibilities surrounding the safeguarding of children, young people, and adults who may be at risk very seriously, and works in partnership with the Diocese of Salisbury to ensure that we work in accordance with best practice at all times.
