The Benefice of Bentley, Binsted & Froyle Churches
The Benefice of Bentley, Binsted & Froyle Churches

A thriving community of faith across three churches.



Binsted Storm Damage

Unfortunately, as the repair work has progressed, further significant damage has been uncovered. Some of this work is urgent to protect the church. This will result in an overrun of the current work, anticipated to be approximately an extra 4-6 weeks. Hence the church will remain closed until further notice. Church services will be held elsewhere in the benefice and notice of this will be given.


We are all so sorry about this, but the church will look amazing once it's been sorted and we are looking forward to being back up and running in the autumn.

Any queries, call Cathie - 07828 088535; Stella - 07740 961256; Kathy - 07710 623784


Please note that service on the 28th August has moved from Binsted to Bentley.

Services in September will be moved or cancelled - notice will be published in the parish magazine and on the website soon.
