Welcome to our Benefice

Welcome to the website for the Benefice of the Meres and Meadows; whether you are browsing, visiting or live in the Benefice, we hope that you enjoy looking around. Situated in the North Shropshire Lake District, our rural Benefice bears witness to the worship of the Christian faith for nearly 900 years. Our four Churches are distinctly individual offering precious but differing insights into the passage of time and the communities they serve. Whilst the Benefice remains proud of its heritage and traditions, it is also forward-looking; embracing new ideas and challenges. Services are held at each Church throughout the month including the more informal Family Service; periodically, the Churches join together for whole Benefice Services and Events. Our teachings and practices are in accordance with those of the Church of England. We worship God the Father, His Son Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit; we endeavour to support and guide people in their daily life through their Christian faith. We extend a very warm welcome to you to join us at any of our services and events. If we can help in any way, please do contact us.
