Mission & Vision

Cherishing our Past & Embracing the Future

Our mission within our Benefice is to keep moving forward as we pray to be generous and visible people of Jesus Christ.  

As part of the Ely Diocese, we aim to follow their vision contained within the Diocesan Strategy of developing traditional forms of church alongside fresh expressions.  

Involvement in our village communities is very important to us and if you are wanting to know more about how you can join us in our work of service and outreach do get in touch.
