• Welcome
    The benefice comprises the six adjacent parishes of Farleigh, Preston Candover and Nutley, Bradley, Brown and Chilton Candover, Northington with Swarraton, and Wield. 
    The April-May parish prayer/Bible reading diary is now available. We include prayers for our communities, those in need, and some of our regular church events across the benefice.


  • Ten Days of Prayer for the Evangelisation of our Nation

    (and our Parishes)

    The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have called all Christians across our nation to come to pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our nation again.

    We have put together a series of prayer times – most 30 minutes or an hour long for every day from Ascension to Pentecost May 2016 below.

    Please make every effort to attend at least one time of prayer – most of us are mobile and able to travel to church buildings other than our own, so we hope that the variety of times will give opportunity for everyone. – we are one church, even though we have nine buildings to use, so please use the opportunities below.
