Welcome to The Wistow Benefice

Welcome to the Wistow Benefice home page. The benefice is comprised of the Church of England parishes of Fleckney, Wistow, Kilby and Newton Harcourt.

Our four beautiful churches have stood for many centuries and throughout that time people have come to celebrate the most important milestones of human life. Our churches are sermons in stone that point to the living faith of the people who worship in them. Our churches speak to us of God and of the victory of Jesus Christ over sin, suffering and death, and all that disfigures life on Earth. Within these churches you will be able to hear the good news of Jesus Christ, and to receive strength and healing from him through the celebration of the life-giving sacraments that he confided to his Church. We hope that you will find this website to be a useful introduction to work of the Church and the Wistow Benefice. We pray that God will bless you and will find life in his Name.
