You have reached the Home Page of the Anglican group of parishes called the 'Benefice of the Orwell Group'. This group of parishes is located in Cambridgeshire, England. It is a group of parishes within the Church of England's Diocese of Ely. For our Church Schools please use the LINKS at the bottom of this page.


WELCOME

Welcome to our website. Whether you are a visitor, or work in the area, a local resident or a member of one of the congregations a very warm welcome will await you in any of our churches.

This Benefice has five churches covering five parishes and we are here to serve you whether you are a regular church attender or not. As rural parishes, many of our congregations have members of various traditions worshipping together, be they Baptist, Methodist, Roman Catholic, or whatever, and all are welcome. After all we all worship the same one God.

Our church buildings are old and worship and spiritual development have been going on formally for at least a thousand years if not more, even if the buildings have changed.

That does not mean we fossilise, and as social changes occur around us we endeavour to respond to the challenges that are presented. This web site will offer you only a taster of what can be found in each parish and if you have questions or recommendations you can always email me using the form in the ‘Contact Me’ pages or perhaps you would prefer to drop into one of our services.

Again welcome.

PS
I collect filled shoeboxes and spare foreign currency for Link to Hope, a small Christian charity which helps local projects in Eastern Europe. The degree of poverty in the areas they support makes me feel so very lucky. If anyone would like more details about the boxes or has spare showboxes for me to fill please do contact me.To see some of the people who've received shoeboxes follow this link:-FACEBOOK

The Benefice has two primary schools that the church is involved with. One is Petersfield which is a Church of England (aided) school that covers the parishes of, Arrington, Croydon, Wimpole and Orwell within the benefice. The other is in Barrington which is a Church of England (voluntary controlled) school that covers the parish of Barrington within the benefice. Both schools also recruit from parishes beyond the benefice. They both have independent web sites.
Petersfield is:-www.petersfield.cambs.sch.uk
Barrington is:-www.barrington.cambs.sch.uk
