A thriving community of faith across three churches.
All of our services are family friendly, with books and toys for our children to play with if they want to. The services indicated with a flower have more formal children's provision, either a children's corner with activities or dedicated children's church sessions. You can be sure of a warm welcome at BenBinFro, no matter your age! And we don't mind noise either, bring the whole family, because we are one big church family after all.
Anna Chaplain to Older People
(P/T 12hrs per week over 2 or 3 days)
Pay: £10 320 per annum
Job location: Bentley, Binsted and Froyle and the surrounding area. The nursing homes are based in Bentley, as is the Benefice office. There is flexibility for working from home.
Holidays: 25 days p.a. pro rata, plus public holidays.
The Benefice of Bentley, Binsted and Froyle are looking to appoint an Anna Chaplain covering the villages of the benefice, plus looking to develop support in the villages of Kingsley and Oakhanger, who will be joining the Benefice through Pastoral Reorganisation. The Anna Chaplaincy is a post promoting the spiritual welfare of older people. It is a pioneering role offering spiritual support to older people, especially, though not exclusively, to those living in residential and nursing homes and to their relatives and the people who care for them.
The Anna Chaplain also has a wider role within the community as an advocate, and champion of the contribution older people make to society. This is an opportunity to draw alongside people of strong, little or no faith, and in encouraging the wider church to celebrate and cherish older members of their congregations.
The role also involves supporting the existing, and recruiting new “Anna Friends”, who are volunteers with a passion for ministry among the elderly made up of congregation members from the churches in the Benefice.
It is an occupational requirement for the person appointed to be a professing and practicing Christian (Equality Act 2010).
The role is a part-time one of 12 hours per week. Enhanced DBS and references will be required.

We are very excited to introduce our brand new praise services in Bentley and Kingsley!
These are slightly different from each other, but full of praise, worship and prayer nonetheless.
At Bentley you can expected extended times of sung worship, excellent Bible and discipleship teaching and lots of time to pray or receive prayer.
At Kingsley we'll be focussed on contemporary worship and prayer for the village - a new venture for Kingsley that we're really excited about.
Let's see where God leads us!
