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.

Lent is a time in the church year when Christians traditionally take time out to have an inner spiritual “spring clean”; reflecting through prayer and Bible reading on the current status of their relationship with God
Mark 1:12-15 At once the Spirit sent him out into the desert, and he was in the desert forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him. After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. "The time has come," he said. "The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!"

The Prayer for Ash Wednesday
Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing that you have made and forgive the sins of all those who are penitent:
create and make in us new and contrite hearts that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may receive from you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit.
One God, now and for ever. Amen.
