Welcome to the 4Parishes Website
This 4Parish Benefice is in St. Ives Deanery in the Diocese of Ely. The Church exists to worship God and serve all God’s people. Across our communities in and around Warboys and Broughton, Bury and Wistow, we seek to do just this. Out task is to offer worship on behalf of the communities God calls us to, and also to strive to help those in need.
Each parish has its own personality, 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 every Sunday, except when there are 5 Sundays in the month, when a joint Benefice (or ‘4Parish’) service is held in one of the 4 churches.
We also join together for special services such as Pentecost. Supporting me in leading worship is a diverse group of Licensed Lay Ministers and Authorised Lay Ministers who, together with others, share their particular gifts within the Benefice.
We pray each day for our communities and are always happy to have requests for individuals in particular need of prayer at any one time – do get in touch if we can support you in this way.
You are also always welcome to come and explore faith with us as we learn together of God’s love and grace and renew ourselves in the Lord’s Service. We are committed to being growing churches who reach out to those new to faith – it’s an exciting adventure we’d love to walk with you.
Please look around the website and we hope you enjoy what you see.
The Rev Garry Dawson-Jones
Rector of the 4Parishes of Warboys with Broughton and Bury with Wistow
