On behalf of the of the Benefice, we would like to welcome you to our three parishes, each

with a significant Church building and a different approach to worship. 

At St Laurence, Winslow, our worship is a lively mixture of the choral, liturgical and

sacramental. We have a large and genuine all-age choir spanning an age range of 78 years!

St Laurence is a member of the Royal Society of Church Music.

St James, Great Horwood, offers a breadth of services celebrating Holy Communion twice

a month at the 11 o'clock service and a more informal service of the Word on the second

and fourth Sundays. Music in Great Horwood includes both the traditional and contemporary.

St Mary's, Addington, are supported in their traditional prayer book style worship by a small

choir from Winslow.  

A range of liturgies has been developed for use across the Benefice and these include

alternative ways of celebrating established patterns of worship such as 'Pimms and Hymns'

and a Eucharist set to nursery rhymes and well-known folk tunes as well as more traditional

services such as Sung Complines and Prime. 

All of the parishes in the Benefice share a common set of aspirations : Hospitality, Healing

and Holiness. All are welcome.  Please click on 'Calendar' in the top menu for exact times

of services. Each individual church has its own web pages, click on the name of the church

in the menu to be taken there.
