Welcome to our website.
We are a small rural benefice in North East Hertfordshire, covering an area that includes Barkway, Barley, Reed, Buckland, Chipping, Nuthampstead and Newsells. Our nearest towns are Royston and Buntingford, but Cambridge is also within easy reach.
As Christians, we seek to worship God and live out our faith in our communities and beyond, in word and action, through loving God and loving our neighbour.
We would very much like to welcome you to join us for worship or for any other activities in the benefice. Please click on the service times at the top of this page for more information.
Jonathan Jasper, our rector, has just made an important announcement in the three churches in the benefice, which is quoted in full. He said “Having just celebrated the 40th anniversary of my being ordained a priest by Bishop Robert Runcie in St. Albans Abbey on Michaelmas Day, 29th September 1974 : I think that it is the right time for me to move into semi-retirement : this would give me the opportunity for some important health issues to be addressed.
So, my last Sunday in ministry in the benefice will be Sunday 26th October, The Last Sunday after Trinity and I hope to be moving sometime during November.
These arrangements have been made after discussion with the Diocese and with their full agreement.”
