Welcome to the Churn Benefice


Welcome to the Churn Benefice!

Welcome!  My name is Father Jason, and I am delighted to welcome you to the Churn Benefice website. The Churn Benefice is a group of six Church of England parishes: Aston Tirrold and Aston Upthorpe; Blewbury; East and West Hagbourne; North Moreton; South Moreton; and Upton.  We came together as a group in 2006, and are part of the newly formed Archdeaconry of Dorchester in the Diocese of Oxford.

We are delighted to have two thriving Church of England Primary Schools in our Benefice, one in Blewbury and the other in Hagbourne.

You are very welcome to visit any of our churches, all of which (with the exception of South Moreton) are usually open during daylight hours.

You would also be very welcome at any of our services – details of our services are found elsewhere on the website.

If you have any inquiries about christenings or weddings, about family history, or any other matter, please do get in touch with our Benefice Administrator.  We look forward to hearing from you!

May God bless you richly, and may you know His gifts of love and joy and peace.

Father Jason
