Welcome to the Manningtree Benefice

Come here to find out more about the Mission, 10-18 May throughout the Manningtree area? You're in the right place! If there's any information that you can't find here, try www.lightinguplives.info as well!

The main programme:

Please also see the calendar for these events, and more, and for other events and services going on in the Benefice.

Please note that the first Sunday of the Mission (May 11) coincides with the Women's Cycle Tour which will be coming through our area. This will disrupt services and parking, so please consider coming along early, or parking elsewhere and walking a little further! We will have a reasonably flexible start time for our services that morning, so if you happen to get stuck behind a wall of cyclists, fear not! Just come along when you can! Contact the Church Office for more information about any of this.

See below for individual event fliers. Please feel free to copy these to your friends and family, or print them off to hand them out. If you need larger numbers of fliers, just contact the person listed on the flier, and they should be able to hook you up!
