Our Churches


A benefice is a parish or group of parishes, normally under the care of a single stipendiary (paid) minister, although a number of other arrangements are possible. Aston St Mary is one of five making up the Beane Valley Benefice which includes Aston, Bramfield, Stapleford, Waterford and Watton-At-Stone. By clicking on the name or the photograph of each church below you will be directed, in a new window, to the relevant churchs' website.
