Church of England Diocese of Peterborough Northampton St. Benedict

St Benedict

We are currently working within the national and local guidance and church is re-opening gradually.

Church is open for private prayer on Saturdays and Wednesdays.  Church will be open for services on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday (but you need to book). Our services are also live streamed on our facebook page.  

Please look at our website which is linked below to find out more about us.  Please also contact us through our church website, which is up to date, interesting and lively - rather than through this - go to St Benedict's Hunsbury (when you get there, it's green!)

Our church  stands in a beautiful site on the top of Hunsbury Hill. We can see for miles from outside our front door. We are a modern church but our parish includes the oldest inhabited sites in Northampton (Briar Hill in the Neolithic Age). We worship in a broadly catholic tradition with our main service on a Sunday being a Eucharist.

In more usual times, we have an active Junior Church which meets during the main Sunday service and a family friendly half hour service on the second Sunday of each month (30 Minute Church).   We have coffee/tea after all Sunday morning services.</span>

During the week we have a range of activities going on, including regular morning prayer and weekly Eucharists, we have a pre-school group, Craft and coffee and many evening meetings, bible study, prayer and bell ringing. 

"The parish of Northampton: St Benedict 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 Peterborough’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs.

If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services."
