About us

The Benefice
The parish of North Nibley is part of the Tyndale Benefice.   We are delighted that Cookie, Rev Rachel Cook, has just become our new vicar. The Benefice Profile gives an overview of the churches, their aspirations and the environment in which they reside.

Churches Together
We work closely with the Chapel in the village, sharing services and other events throughout the year

We have a dedicated choir which sings at all the 9.30 communion services, as well as at ‘special’ services. It is always keen to welcome  new members

The bellringers are looking for new ringers!

Village School
We have very close links with our village C of E primary school, which holds many services in the Church, as well as ‘experience’ events, supported by members of the congregation. We help with ‘open the book’ and hold joint fundraising events with the Friends of the school – FONNS.
We also work with the village nursery and playgroup.

Please see our safeguarding page for more information and the policies page for formal documentation

We are sorry that there is no music this week. David Moss normally spends very many hours mixing the recordings to achieve the quality he produces. He is taking a very well earned break. Very many thanks, David, for all that you..
