Welcome to the website of
The Lambfold Benefice

A group of five Anglican rural parishes

in the geographical centre of England

Reverend Carolyn Oley and the leadership team



Autumn is upon us, nights are drawing in and the glorious days of this wonderful summer will soon be behind us.  Harvest is gathered and we come to a time for reflection, a time of consolidation, a time to review what we have achieved and a time to look to the future.  Possibly a time to see what part God has played and will play in all of this. 

For some this is irrelevant as God does not exist.  Or does he?  They are not sure.  They would like to explore a little bit, but not be made to feel embarrassed. 

For others God is very real but they too would like to know a little more, but not be faced with a ‘tub thumping Bible Revival Meeting’.

If you fit into any of these categories do please come and join us on the ‘Pilgrim Course’ starting on October 14th at 7.30pm in Adstone Old School Hall .  Refreshments will be served from 7pm.  All are very welcome.

I am writing this just after the result of the Scottish Referendum has been announced.  Let us pray that this is an opportunity for all to move forward in constructive amity to build an even stronger Union based on an active understanding of the needs and wishes of each of the constituent parts.

With my love and prayers,



Please note: Reverend Carolyn will be in the village halls from 12.00 p.m. until 2.00 p.m. in the following villages:- Adstone on Tuesday October 7th and Litchborough on Tuesday October 21st. If you want to talk to her in confidence, she will be pleased to see you.
