Our village churches have been part of our community for many hundreds of years. Together our parishes celebrate faith, community, and compassion.

For centuries our parish churches have been a spiritual home to generations of villagers, and our historic church buildings not only help shape the character of our villages, but are a reminder of the presence of God in our daily lives, supporting people at times of joy and times of sorrow. Our churches are very much at the heart of our community life, offering a haven for peace and reflection.

We are grateful to all those who support our work, generously giving their time, their talents, and their money.

Please help us to continue our work.

Your support will enable us to…

  • Continue to offer regular worship, in addition to baptisms, weddings, and funerals, especially bringing community together at Christmas, Easter, Harvest, and Remembrance.
  • Visit the sick, bereaved, and others in pastoral need, including those in local retirement and care homes.
  • Care for our church buildings so they can be passed on to future generations.
  • Continue to develop our work with children and young people, supporting our church schools and offering activities and youth groups to local children and families.
