Littlebourne Benefice



    Public Worship is resuming in our churches on what we trust will now be a regular basis

    Next Sunday  (25th April) there will be services in the following churches:

    9.30 am      Holy Communion at St Andrews Church, Wickhambreaux, Preb. Gillean Craig
    11.00 am     Holy Communion at St Mary's Church, Wingham, Preb. Gillean Craig
    11.00 am     Holy Communion at St Vincent’s Church, Littlebourne, Ven. John Barton

    A video service will also be available on YouTube (“Little Stour Churches”).  That will continue during a short transition period as we get back to a regular pattern of Public Worship every Sunday. 

    • Covid rules will continue to apply.  Please be prepared to wear a face mask.

    Bringing together the five churches

    This website is for our five churches which are currently proposed for amalgamation into a new ‘Little Stour Benefice’. The paper explaining how  the various changes by which this would be achieved can be seen in full here. Our Deanery has also responded to Bishop Rose's call to address the challenges of change within the wider church. You can read the response here.


    If you need to make contact please telephone one of the churchwardens – they will be only too pleased to help. That includes putting you in touch with a priest, if that is your need.

    A prayer for the evening for all those affected by the virus

    Keep us, good Lord,under the shadow of your mercy.

    Sustain and support the anxious,

    be with those who care for the sick,

    and lift up all who are brought low;

    that we may find comfort

    knowing that nothing can separate us from your love

    in Christ Jesus our Lord.
