The Benefice of Atworth with Shaw and Whitley
It is wonderful that you have found us online! We are one worshiping community that share two beautiful Church buildings. Our community is made up of people from all ages and backgrounds, from our beautiful villages and further afield. We are a Church who welcomes everyone, and believes that God's desire is that all would know His love through Jesus. We seek to love and serve our local community and be a witness to this incredible love and hope.
We know that coming through the doors for the first time can seem daunting. Whatever your worries may be, we hope that you will give it a try! You will discover that we are all muddling through life but with the knowledge that we are never alone, always deeply loved and that lives can be transformed with God. When you come to Church you discover an extended family.
"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is Good; His love endures forever."
