Parishes

Our Christian communities

The Okeford Benefice is a group of four Church of England parishes in the Blackmore Vale with a population of 4300. All our churches are forward looking and all have a vision for their future. For some this means re-designing the inside space and for others this means making the services more family friendly or offering a broader range of services. For all of the churches however there is a deep commitment to praying together, studying the Bible and offering of our best when we worship God.

We are always seeking ways to look outside our own church doors and serve our communities and all our churches offer a warm welcome. None of our churches are cliques or clubs for the “in crowd”.
