The Benefice of Bentley, Binsted & Froyle Churches

A thriving community of faith across three churches.


SAVE THE DATE! We're really looking forward to our Family Fun Day on Sunday 9th August from 12 noon. You'll be following a map, touring the villages of Bentley and Binsted and stopping off along the way to take part in competitions, games and activities to learn more about Moses and his journey with God. 


We'll finish the day with a Zoom Family Worship session at 5pm where we'll sing our favourite songs, summarise what we've learned throughout the day and even announce the winners of the competitions!


We're really looking forward to seeing you there.


Please note: we will be adhering strictly to our current government and C of E guidelines to keep everyone safe.





Please find our latest Sunday video service HERE. Our services will be available every Sunday at 11am on our YouTube channel.


Access our Thought for the Day videos HERE.

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.

Over the last few weeks, members of Holy Cross Church have been praying at 9:30am every Wednesday for the parish of Binsted, and we feel this is especially important in these challenging times. This is a non-denominational prayer meeting and we would like to extend an invitation across the whole parish for anyone interested in joining for these meetings via Zoom. If you are unable to stay for the whole hour, please join us for however long you can manage, and if you prefer to pray at home without Zoom, then please do so - you might like to use the prayer guide below, which we use for our meetings.

The Diocese have given guidance regarding the upcoming APCMs for Bentley, Binsted and Froyle churches. 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.
