About Us


St Benedict’s is the Church of England parish church for Briar Hill, Camp Hill, East Hunsbury and West Hunsbury in Northampton.  We form part of the Diocese of Peterborough.


At St Benedict's we want to be a church for everybody in the parish.  For some that will involve helping you celebrate or mark significant events in your life: if you want to enquire about weddings, christenings or funerals, please follow the relevant link on the right-hand side of this page. Others may be less clear exactly what they're looking for: don't worry - we aim to offer hospitable space for all. The church services at St Benedict are a very important part of our life together: over the course of each month, we have a wide range of these, which should offer something for everyone.  Click here to find out some more about what sort of church we aim to be.


We also have a monthly St. Benedict's Cafe on the first Wednesday of each month, from 11am to 2pm in church.  How about joining us for a coffee and a chat in a relaxed setting?


There are a wide range of activities that you can be involved in at St. Benedict's, from those designed to help you explore the Christian faith and those of a more social nature.  Please see the St. Benedict's Diary and the pages for our various groups for details.



Our website also contains a wide range of information about what's happening at St. Benedict's and to support personal spiritual growth.  Please feel free to explore our website to see what's available.


St Benedict’s is part of the South Northampton Partnership of Churches.  We work with our partners at the Abbey Centre Baptist Church and Towcester Road Methodist Church to serve the people of our area.  We are also a member of Churches Together in Northampton.
