About Us

St George's Church, Anstey, St. Mary's Church Brent Pelham, St Nicholas' Church Great Hormead, St Mary's Church Meesden and St Giles' Church Wyddial are all part of one benefice (group of churches) and they are all open daily for prayer, for visitors and for anyone who wants a quiet space. 

All 5 churches warmly welcome enquiries for Baptisms, Weddings, Funerals and pastoral care - do call the Rector, Kate Peacock 1763 289258 or email.

 As a Benefice we are working towards our Mission Action Plan Goals; through our planning we pray to grow in  faith and in number, to serve our neighbours and to minister to those in need. You can read the MAP here.

We are also ably assisted by Rev Paddy Cable a retired Army Padre - not yet in the picture!

We all work together across the benefice sharing the privilege of leading worship here.

 This Benefice is part of the East Buntingford Group; and as such we work closely with our neighbouring parishes of Buntingford, Westmill and Aspenden, Royston, Barley, Barkway and Reed, and Therfield and Kelshall. As clergy we meet regularly and plan and pray for this part of the deanery, and assist each other with leading worship and pastoral ministry. 

The Rev'd Kate Peacock is the Rural Dean.
