Welcoming the new Rector Father David

Rector’s welcome

Welcome to our benefice web site. In the photograph above you see our Rector, Rev’d David Ridgeway, at the celebration following his Induction Service on Sunday 29th November 2015. The service took place in our largest church, at Castor, dedicated to St. Kyneburgha, a Saxon princess, who in the seventh century founded a convent where the church now stands, among the ruins of what is thought to have been the second largest Roman building in Britain. The present church is Norman, and has some rare and beautiful carving on the tower. It was dedicated in 1124. The main benefice Holy Communion service is held here every Sunday at 10.15am.

Wishing you a very happy 2019

Our Rector David, Priests Fr Haydn & Fr Ray, Verger and Benefice Church Wardens wish you all a very happy 2019.  We look forward to seeing you at our regular services of worship. 

Services take place each Sunday at Castor at 8am and 10:15am and at Marholm at 9am. 

At Sutton, services take place on the second and forth Sundays of each month at 9am and at Upton on the third Sunday of each month at 9am.

Angelus & Mattins at 8.30am & Evensong at 6pm daily at Castor.
