Worship and Outreach Groups within the Benefice

Fellowship after the Service
Fellowship after the United Benefice Service in the Lady Chapel at Little Brickhill



Church Services

In general each of the four parishes hold a service in their church every Sunday. On the first Sunday in the month Stoke Hammond and the Methodist Church hold a Joint Family Service, which alternates between the two churches. If there is a fifth Sunday in the month there is just one service in the Benefice, held in one of the churches on a rotational basis. United Benefice Services are also held on days such as Ash Wednesday and Ascension Day. 

The  services are normally held in the church but occasionally a special service may be held in the Parish/Community/Church Hall, a marquee or even outdoors.    

The Rector produces a monthly Newsletter giving details of the services in each of the parishes. A copy of these service schedules is available at the bottom of the "Home" page and can be downloaded as a PDF file.
