Other Churches in our Benefice

Our parish of Bramley and Little London is part of a group of parishes known as a Benefice. We work together, sharing resources and helping one another out when needed, while also retaining our individual styles and preferences as we worship the living God.

These are the other churches in our Benefice:

  • St Leonard’s Church, Sherfield on Loddon
  • St Mary the Virgin, Hartley Westpall
  • St Mary the Virgin, Stratfield Saye

Currently, in-person services in these churches are restricted and we would advise you to contact the relevant church for their opening and service times.  Some are continuing to hold virtual services and again you should check the websites of each of the Churches above for more details if you wish to join them.
