We are a small rural benefice in North East Hertfordshire, covering an area that includes Barkway, Barley, Reed, Buckland, Chipping, Nuthampstead and Newsells. Our nearest towns are Royston and Buntingford, but Cambridge is also within easy reach.
Our active churches are in Barkway, Barley and Reed (Please click on the service times tab at the top of the page to find out the times of our services); there is a redundant church is Buckland, where occasional services are held. (For addresses and postcodes of our churches, please press the churches tab at the top of the screen.)
As Christians, we seek to worship God and live out our faith in our communities and beyond, in word and action, through loving God and loving our neighbour.
We would very much like to welcome you to join us for worship or for any other activities in the benefice.
