“At this Christmas when Christ comes, will He find a warm heart? Mark the season of Advent by loving and serving the others with God's own love and concern.” 
Mother Theresa


We extend a warm welcome to you from the Churches of the Canalside Benefice, which includes Staverton, Hilperton and Hilperton Marsh, Whaddon and Semington. We offer  a wide variety of worship for all ages, formal and informal, reflective and more lively. As those who have discovered the joy of following Jesus, we seek to serve our villages in any way we can.  All are welcome at all our services and activities. If you have any questions about anything on this site, do get in touch.

We believe Christmas is about far more than frantic preparation for the festive season; if you want to explore what this might mean for you, come to one of our Christmas services, you will be very welcome. Click Christmas Services for details.
