Welcome to the Astwell Benefice

    Welcome to the Astwell Benefice Website.  The Astwell Benefice is a group of parishes with six churches situated in beautiful rural South Northamptonshire.

    Our parishes are:

    St James the Great, Syresham with St John the Evangelist, Whitfield
    St Mary and St Peter, Lois Weedon with Weston and Plumpton
    St Mary the Virgin, Wappenham

    We hope our website will help you find out about the services we offer, and we welcome

    anyone to join us for worship  at any of our churches.
