Interregnum – March 2020

Our Benefice is currently in Interregnum, as Rev. Chloe has been called by God to take on a new Parish. She goes with our very best wishes, following the outstanding work she did in her seven years leading our flock in Brixworth. She will be very much missed, but we also look to the future with renewed optimism and excitement as we look to the new incumbent joining us.

In the interim, our services will be taken by regular guest priests, and members of our lay ministry. You will still very much find a warm welcome, and something for everyone.
