Welcome to the 12 Churches website

The Calendar page now incorporates Safeguarding and Benefice Notices.

Welcome to the website of the Shill Valley and Broadshire Benefice. We are a group of
'12 Churches' in rural West Oxfordshire offering a wide variety of worship from traditional Book of Common Prayer to more informal Family Services. Everybody is welcome to attend any of our services and we try to tailor a few specific services each month to those families with younger children. A full list of services can be found on our services page and news relating to children, families and schools work on the families page. A list of services can also be found in the monthly Parish Pump.

Each of our congregations seeks to build and sustain a Christian presence in their village, and provide the spiritual heart for the community. In addition, as a united Benefice we often have mid-week groups exploring Bible Study, the basics of the Christian faith and Confirmation. For details on these and other events taking place look at our news page.

All of our buildings are beautiful examples of historic places of worship, with many features worthy of a visit. They are open during daylight hours for quiet prayer and sightseeing. If you are considering marriage or baptism, or indeed for any other enquiries please contact one of our team.

Do come and join us for worship one Sunday. It would be lovely to see you and meet you. If you would like to know more, or simply wish to chat with a member of the clergy, please get in touch with one of our team.

This Benefice is commited to the safguarding, care and nurture of the children and people of all ages in our Church community. For further information and contact details please follow this link.
