Who are we?
We are a Benefice of four different parishes - Higham, Holton St Mary, Raydon and Stratford St Mary - who were brought together by the Diocese some years ago. Each church maintains its own unique, historic identity within its own village, and its PCC and finances are dealt with separately from the other churches. But we are more and more functioning as one worshipping community, with our worship rota containing one morning and one evening service a month for each church. Please see our Services page for where the services are held month by month.
