Holy Trinity, Throcking


Welcome to the beautiful ancient Holy Trinity Church, Throcking. We are the smallest of the five parishes that form the United Benefice of Ardeley, Benington, Cottered, Throcking and Walkern. Our Priest-in-Charge is Rev Mark Bailey, who lives in Cottered Rectory with his wife Sue.

Our tiny church finally reopened for services on 17th October 2021, having been closed since March 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Everyone is welcome to attend our services, which have now resumed at 11am on the 3rd Sunday every month.
