Church of England Diocese of Peterborough Northampton St. Benedict

St Benedict

Unfortunately in the present circumstances and with great regret but to maintain health and safety we have suspended all public worship, meetings and events, in line with guidance from the Church of England. Please see notice below and our website at  

We are praying regularly and we are worshipping together, many of us are able to use facebook live streamed services to join together.  We are also continuing other contacts using electronic media. 

We live stream every day (except Sundays) at midday, and compline at 9.30pm, and on Wednesday and Sunday we have a Eucharist service at 10am.  At 11.30 on Sundays we live stream a family friendly Thirty Minute Church service with songs and activities to share at home.  Our facebook page is St Benedict's Hunsbury

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.
