The Benefice of Loddon Reach: A country area undergoing rapid suburbanization in the northern part.

Mission Statement:

Benefice of Loddon Reach: To know Christ and make him known through a caring sustainable and growing Christian presence in our community.

Our Strengths:

A loyal and committed congregation willing to accept change to enable outreach to take place into the growing communities in the parish, particularly around the church. A willingness to develop forms of service and other activities more suitable for a younger age group and unchurched. Currently active groups include: Mothers and Toddlers, Songtime (both feeding into out new venture 'The Tea Service'). YAMS (youth), active Bible study group, meditation group, MU, holiday club, choir, bell ringers (tower of 6 bells).

Our Needs:

The strain of staffing a growing number of activities among young families when the base congregation of the church is significantly older. Growing groups which are below viable size or are shrinking.
