Welcome to the Chase Benefice

Christmas Services all listed below

The Church of England Chase Benefice is situated across the Dorset Wiltshire border in part of the beautiful Cranborne Chase and was formed in 2001.  It is currently made up from 10 churches in the 7 parishes of Chettle, Farnham, Tarrant Gunville, Tarrant Hinton, Tarrant Keynston, Tarrant Monkton with Launceston and Rushton, and Tollard Royal.  The church in Tarrant Crawford is maintained by the Churches Conservation Trust and is open for one service a month from May to September each year.  Tarrant Rawston church is privately owned.

The Chase Benefice comprises many people, often volunteers, who work hard to maintain our churches and the presence of God in our parishes.

If you have any questions or concerns, in the first instance please speak in confidence to the Chase Benefice Administrator.  She will do all she can to help or refer you to another member of our team.
