Camelot Parishes

“A family of rural churches proclaiming the greatness of God.” 

 

WELCOME FROM THE RECTOR OF THE CAMELOT BENEFICE

Welcome to the website for the Camelot Group of parishes.  We hope it will both inform and encourage you.

As Christians we wish to grow in the knowledge of God’s love in Christ so that we may pass that love on to others.  Our prayer is that “we might live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us”. (Ephesians 5:2).

Despite the restrictions, the church is the people of God and in that sense we are very much alive and our values of growing as a worshipper, servant and family remain as relevant as ever.

On behalf of the church, I extend my warmest greetings and pray for God’s grace and blessing on your life.
