We hope you enjoy your visit to the Bansfield Benefice's website. The site, hopefully, will be both a point of reference for people interested in Christ's teachings as well as for those who would like to know more about the seven churches of the Benefice, two of which feature in Simon Jenkins' book "England's thousand best churches". If you are a new visitor to our site please take a moment to read the message of welcome from our Rector Rev'd Brin Singleton.

About this site

The web-site layout is simple, on the left are links about the Benefice and each of the seven parish churches within the Benefice. Eventually this site aims to give as complete as possible information about each church. Above are other links which we feel may be of general interest to you. Here you will find information about church services in the Benefice, our News letters and events occurring throughout the Benefice. The church is closely allied to the Wickhambrook Primary School which is attended by many of our younger members. There is also a site map and site search for more detailed navigation and information retrieval. Also why not follow our Blog and Twitter feed.

Quote / thought for the day

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. S. Matth. 5. 16.

Benefice Church of the day - Monday


Saint Margaret's Cowlinge: As in the case of most English villages, the oldest building is the mediaeval Church of St. Margaret of Antioch, which is still in regular use for Christian worship - the purpose for which it was first built over 650 years ago. As such it is the product of a great deal of love and care which people of many periods and traditions have lavished upon it. St Margaret's is listed in Simon Jenkins' book "England's thousand best churches". To find out more click on the image.
