A thriving community of faith across three churches.
Please see below for further details of Remembrance Sunday.
The current Covid-19 restrictions call for limitations on large gatherings. Therefore, because of the aount of space in the Bentley Memorial Hall car park and around the War Memorial in Binsted churchyard, we will need to carry out the Acts of Remembrance differently this year.
We will be providing a pre-recorded Benefice Remembrance Service, including the Roll of Honour for all three parishes, for everyone to watch and we are hoping to be able to provide more on a village by village basis on our YouTube channel.
If you would still like to attend either an Act of Remembrance or the church service in person, you will need to advise us beforehand by contacting the Church Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01420 23339. If you leave a voice message - please make sure you include your contact details. We will need the names and a contact number for everyone attendding so we can let you know if there is capacity and for the NHS Track and Trace service.
Thank you for understanding in these unusual times.
We're so excited to annouce we are restarting Messy Church! For now we will meet over Zoom once a month.
We'll be crafting, singing and learning from the Bible together in the comfort and safety of our own homes. Don't panic, we'll make sure you know what materials you need in advance and afterwards we will be posting a summary video with the craft and story to go alongside each service on YouTube in case you miss out.
Here's how to prepare for Messy Church -
Videos coming soon!
We would love for you to join us for our Monday morning Benefice prayer meeting on Zoom.
We follow a simple pattern of liturgy, reading Scripture, discussion and prayer to set us up for the week ahead.

They have extended the date for APCMs and their associated election dates until the 31st October 2020. Therefore the Electoral Roll revision timetable is also postponed to line up with the extended APCM dates.
