Welcome to the website of
The Lambfold Benefice

A group of five Anglican rural parishes

in the geographical centre of England



We have a new Rector!

Reverend Tim Fernyhough has been appointed Rector of The Lambfold Benefice, and will join us from Radley College, in Oxfordshire, where he has been Head of Theology and Sub Chaplain. A date for commencement of his ministry will be announced in due course.

In the meantime, please contact your Churchwarden for information about churches, services, weddings, funerals and baptisms etc (see Benefice contacts page for details).


The Readers Write

Christmas and all its festivities are behind us, the decorations have been put away for another year and possibly the well intended resolutions have been forgotten.

We all can approach the New Year with some trepidation not knowing what it will bring, what lies in store for us. Will we continue to be employed, will our finances hold out, will our health deteriorate, will Brexit bring chaos and make our life more difficult? These are some of the plethora of thoughts that can course through our minds.

However formidable these concerns may seem to us, we need to bear in mind only one thought. ‘Emmanuel’ – God is with us, the word we sang so lustily in our Carol Services. Whatever trials, tribulations and challenges we may have to undergo we will never be faced with challenges that we will not be able to withstand. God has promised that and God will not break his word. That is the thought and encouragement that we should carry with us into the New Year and into the years to come.

With my love and prayers
