Welcome to our website for the North Leightonstone Benefice

The parishes of Alconbury, Buckworth, The Giddings, Hamerton, The Riptons, The Stukeleys, Upton & Winwick

COVID-19 Update

Because of the difficulties that arise in protecting congregations and  making our churches proof against the new C19 strain, it has been decided, following advice from the Diocese, to suspend public worship within the benefice.  This will continue throughout  January and February, after which it will be reviewed in the light of circumstances which will then prevail.

Online services will continue as a mixture of live streamed (to YouTube & Facebook), Zoom or pre-recorded, details of which will be posted here.

Resources for Worship

now publish each Sunday's sermon online.
It is a growing collection of the latest sermons
presented here to read at your leisure.

Worship at Home

We have crafted two simple acts of worship
particularly geared to those who are isolated or
housebound, or, as at present, cannot attend church.

Missed Funerals

With the added upset of having to miss
the funeral of a friend or loved one,
we offer the small consolation of a
simple funeral service you can say at home.

COVID-19 Restrictions

During the present emergency, in common with all other venues, our churches are closed to public worship.
However, the worst of situations often bring forth the best of solutions and we have started to live stream services on Sunday mornings at 9.30 am.
As ever, everyone is welcome.  You’ll find everything you need to take on the page above.  We offer orders of service and pew sheets for the readings
(along with instructions as to how to print them).  Should you miss the service, it will remain as a video on YouTube Channel page on this website.

While we can't display the 'Potter's Wheel' (you may have to ask an older person about that), we do hope
"Normal Service(s) will be Resumed as Soon as Possible".
