About Us and Churches in the Benefice

ABOUT US

At the heart of the life and purpose of our Benefice is the worship of God.  The Benefice holds a full schedule of Sunday and weekday services, as well as Baptisms, Weddings, Funerals, Thanksgivings, Memorials and Reconciliation and Healing Services. Our liturgical practice incorporates the variety and beauty of our four church buildings and their beautiful spaces. The use of ritual and ceremony varies from the simplest spoken services to the highest festival liturgies involving processions and special music. We treasure the best of Anglican heritage, whilst endeavoring to foster an inclusive and progressive spirit.


CHURCHES IN THE BENEFICE

Our four church buildings are holy places, a local focus for the life and ministry of the Church where prayer has been offered for many years. Please pray for our Bishop and for those who minister and worship here and go in peace.
