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.

Lent 2019

We are holding Lent meetings on Tuesdays during Lent and these will take place on the following dates 12th, 19th & 26th March, 2nd & 9th April at 7pm at Sutton Church. We will share a simple supper and plan to finish the session at 9pm. The theme of this years Lent will be taken from Stephen Cottrell’s book “I thirst”. Copies of the book may be provided on request or can be obtained from Fr David at our 10:15am service at Castor this coming Sunday.

If you’d like to register your interest in attending, please contact Jo in the Benefice Office admin.castor@btconnect.com or tel 01733 380900.
