Our Benefice is just west of Stafford and the four churches cover several rural villages.

All our churches are within a 3 mile radius from the rectory, which is in Haughton, the largest village.


We are united in seeking someone who can:

  • Promote ways of growing the church in a rural area;
  • Promote recruitment & learning for lay ministry & leadership;
  • Help to develop ministry amongst young people and children and build on the opportunities provided by our schools;
  • Encourage us to be outward-looking and open to new ideas;
  • Help to continue the close co-operation between the four parishes;
  • Encourage individuals to develop their talents;
  • Develop links between the church and the local communities.

To support the Rector, we have four skilled and energetic PCC’s working for each of their Parishes. To support the Benefice the Wardens and PCC Treasurers meet regularly to pray for our communities and guidance in moving the Benefice forward.
