Welcome to the website of
The Lambfold Benefice

A group of five Anglican rural parishes

in the geographical centre of England



The New Rector writes:

First may I thank all of you for your kind welcome to the Lambfold Benefice.  Liz and I have been very grateful for all the support you have given us in a variety of ways since our arrival, and, (together with the two ‘Rectory dogs’ -Frankie and Pepper!), we already feel very much part of the community. I would also like to thank each and every person who was involved in the Induction service and all of you who came to support me in this event at the start of my ministry in the benefice.

So now we enter Autumn the season which John Keats in that marvellous poem ’Ode to Autumn’ described as being of ‘mellow mists and fruitfulness’. The harvest has been gathered in, already (to quote Thomas the Tank Engine)’ the yellow stubble in the fields is turning once again to brown earth’, Harvest Festivals are in the process of being celebrated, a new school year has started and the ‘new boy’ is in post. So we look ahead to the next year in so many ways; new crops being planted, new challenges to face and new opportunities for growth.  It is my hope and my prayer that, like the seeds about to be planted and which tended with care grow quietly and strongly before yielding the next harvest , each of the individual parishes in our wider benefice may grow and support each other in hope and faith. I hope that in doing so there are many laughs and joyful moments along the way.

With every good wish,

Fr. Tim
