Welcome to the web site for the Benefice of Somersham, Pidley-cum-Fenton, Woodhurst and Old Hurst. On this web site you will find information and help for all four of the churches within the Benefice. Whether you are a regular member of our congregation, someone searching for a place of worship, a visitor to the area, someone interested in architecture or family history, someone wanting to celebrate your marriage, baptise your child or mark the passing of a loved one, our web site will help you to find what you need and put you in touch with someone who can help.

If you are looking for a church family to join or wondering whether God might be relevant in your life but not sure where to start looking, take a look through the site and learn about the mission of the churches and the many activities and events you could enjoy with us.

We invite you to visit us, so please have a look at our times of service. You will receive a very warm and loving welcome.
