Photo of a slate hanging heart with the word 'Sunday' written on it.

 

And above all these put on love,
which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
to which indeed you were called in one body.
And be thankful.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly,
teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom,
singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
And whatever you do, in word or deed,
do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Colossians 3: 14:17

 

 

 

We are a large benefice with a total of 9 rural village churches and one full time stipendary minister. Although he is assisted by a great team, our service time table can still be rather confusing!

Each parish has it's own service pattern. Since January 2017 this pattern has undergone some changes.

To get the latest information about the services for a particular date please go to the Calendar.

On the 4th Sunday in a month then we usually join together on that day at one church for a Benefice Service.
There are no other services in the Benefice that morning.

This is the Thameshead Benefice 'Normal' Sunday Service Pattern.

Whilst this reflects an average month there are frequently special occasions that may cause this pattern to change.
