We are delighted you have chosen a few moments to look around at our Saxonwell Group of Churches.
Our hope is that you will stay for a while and catch a glimpse of who we are. If you would like to get to know us further, why not join us for one of our services. Every week we gather to celebrate the risen Christ, we would be delighted to welcome you.
Currently St Swithun's in Long Bennington and Holy Trinity Church in Allington have services every week, whilst the other two churches (St Peter’s in Foston and St Lawrence’s in Sedgebrook) each have two services a month. Please see the individual church pages, or local noticeboards or our latest Parish Magazine October 2020 for more information.
