St. Benedict's Bennetts End

St. Benedict’s Bennetts End

St. Benedict’s Church stands at a busy junction, opposite the main Bennett’s Gate shops. The building was completed in the late 1950s, and was based on the model of Coventry cathedral. It includes a disabled access WC, installed proudly after much fund-raising by the then Vicar and congregation in 2013. The hall and toilet facilities are situated below the main church building, with access via the church and also through nearby Barnacres Road. The church prides itself on giving a warm welcome to all. The current vicar, Revd Richard Howlett, was licensed in January 2017, and also has responsibility for St Mary’s church, Apsley.  As part of its Mission Action Plan, the church recently replaced its noticeboard with a more modern one, and aims to open the church during the weekday, to provide a ‘sacred space’ and place of rest and spiritual refreshment. ”
