Welcome to The Tew Benefice

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.

THE FIRST GREAT TEW CIRCLE TALK – 26th March 2022 at 6pm
Many of you will be familiar with the Great Tew Circle, a philosophical and religious study group led by Lucius Cary which met at Great Tew Manor from c 1633 to 1639 before the Civil War. The members of the Circle could be described as precursors of the Enlightenment. We are planning to examine the activities of the Great Tew Circle.

Our first speaker will be the Revd Professor Nigel Biggar CBE, the controversial Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology, University of Oxford who will talk about the Great Tew Circle and what might concern it today. The evening will start with talk and discussion in church at Great Tew, followed by a supper in the Vicarage, for which tickets will be sold on a first come- first served basis. This will give people a chance to talk to our speakers. Details to follow. Tickets may be booked through Kate at  [email protected]. Price of tickets for the talk is £15 (£10 for students) and for the supper is £25 to include 3 courses and a glass of wine.
