About Us

Our services are listed on our web site: https://unitedbenefice.wordpress.com/

We are part of 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. At present our Benefice is in vacancy so please pray that someone suitable will soon come forward to lead us.

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.
