Church of England Diocese of Gloucester Elkstone

Elkstone parish church

Our benefice of nine parishes lies along the upper reaches of the River Churn which rises at Seven Springs near Coberley just South of Cheltenham. The river flows from the Cotswold Edge towards Stratton, one mile north of Cirencester then onwards onto the Thames Valley plain. Please come and join us! Revd David Minns, Rector, Churn Valley Benefice.

Please note the PCC of Elkstone parish church is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Gloucester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
