Welcome to The Burnhams Benefice

Thank you for visiting our site

We hope that it will be of use in helping you find out what the Church is up to here in Nelson's home parishes. However, what we really hope for is to get to know you in person. We worship together in a relaxed and, hopefully, meaningful style, both contemporary (Common Worship) and traditional (Book of Common Prayer). A friendly welcome awaits you here, regardless of your tradition or simply if you’re just curious.



Sunday services are usually held at:

8am - Holy Communion

10:30am - Holy Communion (most weeks)

6:30pm - Evensong (BCP) @ All Saints', Sutton cum Ulph (Burnham Market)

Sunday morning services take place at a different church each week. Please check the rota!

Wednesday 9:30am - BCP Holy Communion @ All Saints', Sutton cum Ulph (Burnham Market)

The period during which there is no rector for the benefice is called a vacancy.  During this time a search and selection procedure takes place; the length of this period is enormously variable but a national average is about 6-9 months.  During this time initial enquiries can be directed through the churchwardens (see the Contacts link, above).  

A vacancy can be quite an exciting time for a worshipping community, when Anglican Christians can know the reality of St Peter's notion of the "priesthood of all believers" and look to a future which progresses the mission of the Church in this place.  Do feel that we can all be part of this.
