The Benefice of Thurstable and Winstree
The Benefice of Thurstable and Winstree came into being on Tuesday, 1st October 2013, when nine parishes of three former benefices were brought together in one new benefice.
Under the provisions of the Pastoral Scheme for the creation of this benefice, each of the nine parishes retains its distinct identity and each of the nine churches retains its status as a parish church.
Members of the benefice's Ministry Team are licensed and authorised ministers, both clerical and lay, led by the Team Rector, The Revd Anne-Marie Renshaw.
