Welcome to the Bernwode Benefice

The Bernwode Benefice draws together Christians from the seven parishes of Ashendon, Boarstall, Brill, Chilton, Dorton, Ludgershall and Wotton Underwood, in the hilly area of Aylesbury Vale, to worship following the Anglican form of worship. We are a lively community of men, women and children working together to grow in our Christian faith and to show God’s love in our communities.

The Benefice in a few words

We have a variety of activities for everyone:

  • Our church services cover everything from the more formal services, in traditional or modern language, to our weekly informal Encounter services
  • Friday Club is an after schools activity group held every Friday in term-time.
  • The choir add their music to worship once a month and at festivals
  • and don't forget other activities such as the coffee morning for a social gathering or the bell ringers providing a music summons to worship.

During the vacancy Jenny Edmans, Associate Minister, will be taking pastoral charge of the Benefice.   Please feel free  if you want to talk to ger about anything:  personal (for example, about a baptism, wedding or funeral or something personal or spiritual) or something around the benefice (for example, services, home groups, etc) or just to talk.
