Our Churches

A strong lay team sustains the life and ministry of the benefice.

Each church within the group has their own distinct ministry. 

We embrace a number of different styles of worship. You will find the full range of services using the Book of Common Prayer which includes Matins, Communion and Evensong. We enjoy robed communion services using Common Worship and informal services of Morning Worship and are currently planning a creative evening service once a month.

We have all embraced the challenge to make our churchyards places to encourage wildlife, in our rural setting.

There are many friendships between members of the different churches, and we are continuing to look for opportunities to strengthen relationships within the Group.

We are seeking to  forge links with the wider community, including closer engagement with our three schools. Members of our churches are foundation Governors 

We would like to do more to take the love of God into our communities, where there are challenging new opportunities among the many recently built homes in Beckington and the large new estate: Edmund Park in Rodden. The latter is an opportunity and challenge to all of us not only in the benefice but also in the deanery as a whole. 

We are a "work in progress"
