The United Benefice of Silsoe, Flitton and Pulloxhill Churches
St James the Great, Silsoe, St John the Baptist, Flitton, and St James the Apostle, Pulloxhill
We are all part of one benefice, which means we have separate churches and services, but we share one vicar. There is currently a vacancy, but we are looking forward to having a new vicar in 2015.
We hope you enjoy browsing round this website, and we would love to see you at one of our services or events.

As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.
Welcome! to the website of three churches in Bedfordshire
Harvest Festivals are well under way in the Benefice.
A traditional Harvest Service was held at Pulloxhill on 14th Sept, followed by tea and cakes and an auction.
Harvest Songs of Praise was held at Flitton on 21st Sept, followed by the fantastic Harvest Supper and Auction, held in the Marquee at the White Hart on Monday 22nd. Thanks to Phil and all at the White Hart for providing the main course, and everyone else who contributed to a brilliant evening.
Silsoe Harvest Festival is coming up on October 5th, so if you haven't been to one yet, this will be your last chance!
For a rural community such as ours, the harvest festival is a tradition going back centuries, and it is great to be part of it and to pass it on to the next generation.
