See where the Stour Vale Churches and Parishes are

 Welcome  to the website for the seven churches in the group of parishes called the Stour Vale Benefice. This covers Buckhorn Weston, East Stour, Fifehead Magdalen, Kington Magna, Stour Provost with Stour Row, Todber and West Stour.

All of the Stour Vale Churches have their own services and other activities – reflected on their pages on this site – as well as joint activities – more details in this section.

One ministry team looks after the spiritual needs of the whole of the Benefice of Stour Vale – contacts here.

Stour Vale Benefice takes its responsibilities surrounding the safeguarding of children, young people, and adults who may be at risk very seriously, and works in partnership with the Diocese of Salisbury to ensure that we work in accordance with best practice at all times.
