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.

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
  • Our home groups meet regularly throughout the year to share the Christian journey and to read the Bible together
  • Live Wires is for children up to the age of 11 years old
  • and don't forget other activities such as the bellringers or the choir who add their music to our 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.  

For more general matters, please contact our Benefice Administrator, Lisa Lambert at admin@bernwodebenefice.com or at 07494 89772 on Mondays and Wednesdays.

For matters concerning a specific parish (such as events, the registers, etc) please contact the appropriate churchwarden in the first instance (see who's who) or feel free to contact us.

Find out what is going on in the area and take a look at the parish pages.
