About Us

We are a benefice comprising of five churches located in rural South Northamptonshire.

Each of our churches are committed to ensuring that the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ
is spread throughout the area and lived out through our service to others.

Our main services include Holy Communion and will be familiar to those

who are used to Anglican worship -
Whiston maintains the traditional Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion
and is a really special experience in beautiful surroundings.

We have good links with our church schools and are committed to working with
children and families -  we are experimenting with Wild Church and Muddy Church
on a monthly basis - wellies are advised!
