Welcome to St Benedict’s


  • Weekday Communion

    Holy Communion is held weekly in St Ben’s on Fridays at 10am. This is a short service of about half an hour following Common Worship. Please join us then.

    St John’s also has a weekly Holy Communion service on Wednesdays at 10am.

  • Benefice Holy Communion Service at St Mary’s Meare on Sunday 29th

    This coming Sunday is the fifth in the month and there is no service at St Ben’s on this day. It’s the turn of St Mary’s Meare to host our Benefice Communion service at 10am. Meare always gives us a good welcome and it’s a great opportunity for fellowship outside our own congregation.

  • Morning Prayer in St Ben’s and our Benefice

    Come along to join us in the Office of Morning Prayer held in St Ben’s on Wednesdays at 9am. Morning Prayer is also held on Tuesdays in St John’s and Fridays in St Margaret’s Chapel, all at 9am.
