Welcome to the Astwick Vale Benefice, in rural Northamptonshire. Our Churches are :-


St Michael's, Aynho

All Saints Croughton

St George, Evenley

St Michael and All Angels, Farthinghoe

We believe that the church should be at the centre of our lives and the communities in which we live. This means you will always find a warm welcome whatever the weather at any of our services or events.  We welcome those of faith and those of none.

We produce a weekly newsletter 'Pews News' which is distributed to all the churches and contains more announcements about weekly goings on in the Benefice. The most recent one can be found here.
