We are sorry to say that, in line with the policy of the Church of England, our churches are temporarily closed for services. All public church activities are suspended.

God bless you and give you peace and comfort in these difficult times. We will be open for services again in line with official guidelines at the appropriate time.

At this time our clergy will continue to pray the regular services privately, praying for the parishes, and suggest you might want to do the same in your own home.  Online Daily Prayer is available including the daily Bible readings on the Church of England website and you can make your choice between “Contemporary” or “Traditional (Book of Common Prayer) language.

Set in the heart of the East Midlands, the Five Churches Benefice is located in the centre of Northamptonshire between Wellingborough and Kettering. The benefice incorporates the churches of Great Harrowden, Isham, Little Harrowden, Orlingbury and Pytchley. More information about these great churches including their history and local village events can be found on the churches dedicated page.

Our centrally-located benefice draws its congregation from local villages, surrounding villages and towns further afield. We are always happy to welcome a new face. We are privileged to be able to worship in five different churches around the benefice, offering variety and flexibility.

Although our churches have an interesting history, people make the church what it is today and what it can become. If you would like to be part of that future, advancing the kingdom of Jesus Christ in the 21st century, then we would be delighted to welcome you among us.

Find out more about celebrating something really special like a Baptism or Wedding – or preparing a funeral. All sorts of things are going on in our villages, find out the latest events happening around the benefice using our interactive events’ calendar. We have lots of groups around the benefice and cater for all age ranges. There is always something going on so come along and join us and make some new friends! We hope you will find it a gateway to discover enough about us to want to know more.
