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.
