Benefice Services

On the right hand side are the services for each month. These will open in a new window.

The service sheets were produced by the Rector who retired in May 2020. The old ones are left purely for interest or reference!

Some of the churches in the Benefice do remain open to individuals for private prayer and contemplation.  However there are services again at various churches throughout April.  Hopefully things will continue to improve.The situation will be kept under review.

As we carry on with life under the threat of Covid, it’s easy to feel that life is pretty negative, so here are a couple of thoughts:

“Positive anything is better than negative nothing”.

Elbert Hubbard – writer and philosopher


“Positive thinking is more than just a tagline. It changes the way we behave. And I firmly believe that when I am positive, it not only makes me better, but it also makes those around me better”.

  • Harvey Mackay – author and columnist
