Welcome to our website

We are a United Benefice of 4 beautiful churches in the Staffordshire Moorlands. Here you will find information about our churches, what's going on in the benefice and how you can get involved. Through our varied weekly worship, activities and community links we seek to share the love of God with everyone, and in doing so provide a firm spiritual foundation in the Christian faith.
We would love to welcome you to any of our historic churches, especially if you are looking to organise a wedding or baptism. It is our hope that in our church communities you will discover a place to belong, believe and become. Revd. Amanda

Who we are

‘Sharing the love of God with everyone’

The United Benefice is made up of the four parishes of Cheddleton, Horton, Longsdon and Rushton Spencer. Although our church buildings date back to the 13th century, we have very forward looking congregations with lots of lay and volunteer involvement both within the church life and socially in our parishes.
