A warm welcome to the website of the Little Stour Benefice

Our Benefice comprises three parishes: Ickham with Stodmarsh and Wickhambreaux, Littlebourne and Wingham.

We are a family of five ancient churches each with its own character and beauty. You are always welcome to visit us.

Little Stour Benefice Confirmation Service 

We were absolutely delighted to have held our first Confirmation service in over 5 years in our Benefice on Sunday 30th June. We were so happy to welcome 13 new members to our Benefice.  We had over 60 people come and see them make their promises to God and share in their celebration of their first holy communion with their congregations as confirmed members of our community!
