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

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


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.
