About our Benefice


Welcome  to... St Mary’s Clymping, St. Mary’s Yapton and St. Andrew’s Ford - the 3 churches that make up our Group (Benefice).


Through the month there are services at different times, places and styles. Our hope is that you will find an approach to worship that will be helpful to you. (Services can change, do check with office or website).

Services range from child friendly family services, Holy Communion services, contemporary epiphany and traditional ‘old style’ services. In addition, there are a number of Fellowship groups that meet regularly, social gatherings, Alpha courses, choirs, music groups and plenty of opportunities to get involved and serve. 

Please do contact us if you have any questions or want to know more.

Alternatively, come and see us at one of our services or events...
