Welcome to our Benefice

Circle Circle Circle logo 2 sha ph

The benfice is made up of two ecclesiastical parishes, 'Compton' and 'Shackleford and Peper Harow' and has three churches. They are traditional churches in beautiful places where all are welcomed.


The churches at Compton and Shackleford are usually open during daylight hours and their individual pages tell you more. We offer opportunities for people of all ages and from all walks of life to come to church on Sundays. As country village churches our services are traditional but with a light touch; most morning services have a Eucharist (Communion) and music is nearly always led on the organ.


The Rector is always very happy to discuss requests for baptisms, weddings and funerals so please do contact her.
