Welcome to St. Margaret's Fernhurst, St. Peter's Lynchmere and St. Paul's Camelsdale; the United Benefice of Fernhurst, Lynchmere and Camelsdale.

We are village-based welcoming Anglican Churches which seek to be active, authentic and accessible in the 21st century.  Our Mission Statement is 'to worship God, help one another grow in Christ and share his love throughout our communities.

Our lives and our commitment to serving the communities in which we live are therefore informed by our worship, which varies from said Book of Common Prayer services to informal services of prayer, praise and healing. 

This website will give you an idea of what our United Benefice is all about, in all our variety; but there's no substitute for the personal encounter.  As Christ said to some people who wanted to know more about him, "Come and see."

Come and join us on the journey...
