Welcome to the United Benefice of Kensworth, Studham and Whipsnade

Part of the North Chilterns Group of Parishes




As last Sunday, next Sunday we will be worshipping both at our 9.00am online service (which also can be accessed any time after the service has finished), and in a service in a church building, this week St. Mary Magdalene's, Whipsnade, at 10.30am.

The pattern for the coming weeks of the services at 10.30am in our buildings is as follows:

May 2nd 10.30am at Kensworth

May 9th 10.30am at Studham 

For those coming to the church buildings please remember:

  • we will be following government guidelines on social distancing and all hygiene measures (two metres distance where possible, one metre plus where not, and hand sanitising at the entrance to the building);
  • please wear a face covering if possible;
  • to fill in the pews from the front (this may mean that you can’t sit in your ‘usual pew’! Please follow directions from a benefice churchwarden);
  •  to leave from the door nearest to you (which may be the priest door in the chancel);

conversation after (or before) the service must take place outside the building.



Attached are KSW WorshipLink which you can use for Home Church by yourself for the next two weeks, and also, for those who can access YouTube, orders of service for use with the online provision.
