Following the criteria set out by the Church of England and to safeguard our leaders, congregations and communities, the Benefice Council decided that church buildings in the Benefice would not reopen for public worship at least until September, with a review of the situation taking place within 3-4 weeks.
Any proposal for a special service during this time would be sympathetically considered on request to Phil.
The criteria that has been considered is on our Covid19 Benefice information page.

The prayers will be collected, unread to be anonymous
and to preserve your confidentiality.
During our Sunday morning Zoom worship, they will be collectively held and offered to God.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God.
Seven Parishes, one Benefice
Always a warm welcome. The seven churches in the Benefice of West Trent are traditional churches, with a strong sense of community and village life. Seasons are a strong focus with the farming featuring in many of our villages. Each church having it’s own Parochial Church Council and character. Many of the churches go back centuries and have interesting historic artefacts.
