Welcome to the 4Parishes Website
Praise God, the Reverend Garry Dawson-Jones has been appointed as the 4Parishes’ new Rector.
This 4Parish benefice is in St. Ives Deanery in the Diocese of Ely. The two pairs of parishes were joined together at the last deanery pastoral reorganisation some years ago. Notwithstanding, in this document the parishes have been listed in order of size.
Each parish has its own personality, has a church building and manages its own affairs through its Parochial Church Council. Three of the parishes have services with ‘Fresh Expressions’ style outreach.
Worship takes place in each parish each Sunday, except on fifth Sundays in the month when a joint benefice service is held in one of the four churches in turn. We also join together for special services such as Pentecost.
Licensed Lay Ministers and Authorised Lay Ministers, together with others, share their particular gifts within the benefice.
