Welcome to The Tew Benefice

Saturday, April 27, 6 o’clock, St Michael and All Angels Great Tew
SIR JOHN HOLMES, GCVO, KBE, CMG – How can we adapt foreign policy to today’s realities?
The current international scene presents some terrible and profoundly worrying situations, from Ukraine to Gaza. Other under-reported crises such as that in Sudan are worsening, with little apparent hope in sight. The international community seems unable to get to grips with resolving these problems. Poor relations between the major powers leave international institutions such as the UN almost powerless, and humanitarian aid is struggling to keep pace with need, even where it is not obstructed. How did we get here, and what can we do better in the future? And where might the UK best fit in, and contribute effectively?

Talk followed by drinks £15, talk and dinner £25. Students (over 16) free. For tickets contact [email protected] by 22 April


It is our great pleasure to welcome you as you visit our website. We hope you will get a sense of the open and friendly community at each of our three churches and join us for Sunday worship whenever you can.

These are living churches putting God at the heart of our rural communities and we welcome inquiries for baptisms, weddings, funerals and other pastoral matters. Please don’t hesitate to contact us on [email protected] if you have any questions. In addition to its services, each church has an interesting history.
