Welcome and thank you for visiting our website which I hope you will find both welcoming and useful. The BCI Churches are a benefice of Holy Trinity in Blendworth, Saint Michael and All Angels in Chalton and Saint Hubert’s in Idsworth. With a wealth of history to explore, and many unique and beautiful features we are well worth a visit. However, we are more than just buildings; we are a community of people who are inspired by our faith in God, to learn from the teachings of Jesus and seek to be led by the Holy Spirit, to love and serve the community around us. We worship together on Sunday mornings, and are involved in many other aspects of church and village life. We would love to welcome you to any of our churches and get to know you, so please click on the links to find out more.

Latest News and Upcoming Events
Thy Kingdom Come
Resources are available to download from the Thy Kingdom Come website to use at home. It would be would be wonderful if all our parishioners joined in the global call to prayer.
Joy and Vickie will be live streaming midday prayer via the churches Facebook pages every day during Thy Kingdom Come, from Ascension Day to Pentecost, except Sundays when the church will pray in their Sunday services. Here is the order of service for the midday prayers.
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus.
We are praying that the Spirit will inspire and equip us to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with our friends and families, our communities and networks. Specifically, we again invite each and every Christian across the globe to pray that God’s Spirit might work in the lives of 5 friends who have not responded with their ‘Yes’ to God’s call.
Who will your 5 be?
To reduce the risk of infection, we will be placing sanitising stations at the entrance to the churches, and organising the space to maintain social distancing. Unfortunately there will be no music or singing during this transitional period, and it will be necessary to register attendance for track and trace purposes. The wearing of face masks has become compulsory in enclosed public spaces from 24th July. You will need to wear a face mask if you are attending a church service on Sunday. Please bring your own as we don’t have supplies. These guidelines are formalised in our Risk Assessments for attending worship at Holy Trinity, Saint Michael and All Angels and Saint Hubert’s.
