Welcome to the Edenham Benefice
We are an ancient but living Christian community here in the Edenham Benefice. Our roots go back to the Saxon Minster, but the church now serves a very mixed community set on the Grimsthorpe Estate. We are a community of all ages who worship together. We offer a warm welcome to visitors.
We serve the Hamlets of Edenham, Grimsthorpe, Elsthorpe, and Scottlethorpe. The Vicarage serves as the regional house retreat centre.
The worship of our churches expresses the richness of the tradition of the Anglican Church.
We offer a warm welcome at St Michael's and All Angels. Our community is one of all ages who worship together. Come along and explore the delights of our tradiational Anglican services for yourself.
The church is full of light and peace with a well founded tradition of worship in the beauty of holiness. We have a open door policy, welcoming people from all traditions. Every-member ministry is the keynote of our parish.
