Benefice Groups

As local churches, we wish to be at the hub of community life, encouraging people to enjoy each other's company, to grow and learn, and to support one another.

There are a number of  church-run groups which meet in the EWB Benefice, which provide fellowship and support to people with different needs and interests. You are most welcome to join, or attend, any of these - whether you are a member of a church or not.

The benefice groups are divided into different categories to make it easier to find what you are looking for. There are also many community groups with which we have close contact, but not directly run by the church. Please click on 'School and Community' above to see what is on offer.
