Welcome to The 3 Churches Benefice

Great Amwell with St Margarets and Stanstead Abbots

Our churches sit in a triangle of countryside in the three villages of Great Amwell, St Margarets and Stanstead Abbots, and serve the community by working together to bring God’s Good News to everyone.

We seek to make space for people to meet God in worship and prayer, to belong to God’s Family and join our fellowship, and to get out and show God’s Love through social action and working in our community. We have close links with our two Church schools and are blessed by being able to work with the teachers, staff and children.

We want to welcome everyone and to help them to walk closer with God, discovering together what it means to ‘live life in all its fullness’, as Jesus promised we would!

Priest in Charge
