The United Benefice of Silsoe, Flitton and Pulloxhill Churches
St James the Great, Silsoe, St John the Baptist, Flitton, and St James the Great, Pulloxhill
We are all part of one benefice, which means we have separate churches and services, but we share one vicar - the Reverend Stephen Holroyd.
We hope you enjoy browsing round this website, and we would love to see you at one of our services or events.

Benefice Day Trip to Ely
The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
Welcome! to the website of three churches in Bedfordshire
In July we remember the Apostle who is the patron saint of both Silsoe and Pulloxhill – St. James. James was the brother of John, who wrote the Gospel named after him. He and his brother had the reputation of having a rather short fuse, so Jesus gave them the nick-name of “Sons of Thunder”. James was a leader of the early Church in Jerusalem but literally lost his head when Herod Antipas persecuted the Church.
Fancy a day out and a guided tour of Ely Cathedral?
We are going on September 28th, aiming to arrive in time for lunch, with a tour (cost £4) at 2 pm followed by Evensong at 4 pm.
If there is enough demand, we will organise a coach, but at the moment it looks as though we will take our own cars, but there will be plenty of spare seats if you don't want to drive.
