Bromham Benefice:
Bromham, Oakley and Stagsden Churches Welcome You

Welcome to Bromham Benefice website!

Vicar: The Rev Catherine Wilson

The Benefice is made up of three rural parishes to the west of Bedford – Bromham, Oakley and Stagsden. Our three beautiful and ancient churches have been part of their communities for hundreds of years, and continue to provide a focus for Christian worship, growth and outreach.

We would love to welcome you to any of our services or events, so do come and get to know us; and please get in touch if you need more information about anything on this website, or you have a specific question.

If you wish to visit one of our churches outside service times please contact the relevant churchwarden or our Administrator who can arrange access (all churches are kept locked), please see our Who’s Who page for contact details.
