We hope you enjoy your visit to the Bansfield Benefice's website. The site, hopefully, is 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 our message of welcome.

Church services

We are always delighted to have you visit our churches and join us for a service at any of our seven historic churches. Please click on Services for the current rota and for future months.

About this site

The website layout is simple, on the left are links about the Benefice itself and below that each of the seven parish churches within the Benefice. Eventually this site aims to give as complete as possible information about each church. At the top of the page 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 Academy which over the years was attended by many of our younger members. There is a site search for information retrieval. Also why not connect with us on Facebook.

Quote / thought for the day

The Lord bless us, and keep us; the Lord lift up the light of his countenance upon us, and give us peace, now and for evermore. Amen.

Benefice Church of the day - Tuesday

Denston

Saint Nicholas' Denston: A church existed on this site in the twelfth century but the present building. apart from the tower, was rebuilt almost from the ground in the latter part of the fifteenth century; and a "college" - that is an association - of chantry priests, one master and two co-brethren was incorporated with the Parish church in fulfilment of the terms of the will of John Denston. St Nicholas is listed in Simon Jenkins' book "England's thousand best churches". To find out more click on the image.
