Rutland Water Benefice


    Sharing the love of Christ with all


    Dear visitors, in light of the Government guidance relating to COVID-19 around non-essential contact, Church buildings within the Rutland Water Benefice are closed until further notice.


    Welcome to the Rutland Water Benefice, comprising the parishes of Edith Weston, Empingham, Lyndon, Manton, North Luffenham, Pilton, Preston, Ridlington, Whitwell and Wing. Each church usually has a regular pattern of worship.

    Whilst meeting up is not possible, we are all encouraged to care for those around us and embrace imaginative initiatives to enable us to keep in contact with one another during these unprecedented times.

    During these difficult times however we continue to explore different ways to stay in touch and a brief overview of these are listed below.

    Rutland Water Benefice Magazine

    The monthly Magazine is packed full of news, events and local services around the Benefice and includes innovative ways that different groups are staying in touch during the Covid-19 restrictions. The Magazine is usually distributed free of charge to every home in the Benefice, made possible by the generous support of the advertisers and our team of volunteer distributors. However, in light of the current health crisis a digital version of the Magazine including scanned adverts is available on the Magazine web page.

    Advertising in the Magazine

    Visit the Magazine web page for information including costs of placing an advert.

    The web administrator would love to hear from you if you have other ideas you think might be helpful to share with others.
