We are delighted to announce that the Reverend David Payne has been appointed as the Priest in Charge for the Benefice of Silsoe, Flitton and Pulloxhill.
David is currently the Vicar of Bottesford, Muston, Redmile, Plungar and Barkestone in the Vale of Belvoir (Leicester Diocese) and Deanery Pastoral Ministry Enabler. David and his family are expected to move into the Silsoe Vicarage towards the end of October and he will be licensed by Bishop Alan on 10 November.
Services in our Benefice Churches will resume in September; these will be led by members of our Ministry Team and details of when and where services are taking place can be found in Services around the Benefice and on the individual Parish pages.
We hope to be able to make a recorded version of one of the services available on The Virtual Vicar each week for those of you who are unable to attend church.
Flitton Church is open for private prayer by appointment only – please contact Angela Ayres on 01525 860723

The common shared vision of the Benefice is
“Growing as beacons of Christ’s light in our communities”
and this supported by a set of values across all three churches:
Welcome Prayer Community Worship Friendship Christ centred
It is recognised and understood that each of the three Churches have their own specific opportunities and challenges but by working together and offering an appropriate range of worship options, the Benefice is able to deliver its vision and values and meet the needs of its congregations.
