Vision

What is the vision for your Church, Parish, Team Ministry or Benefice?

We want to be seen as active, worshipping together, an outward-looking, caring community.

Values

What are the core values for your Church, Parish, Team Ministry or Benefice?

On 14 July 2019, the installation took place of Revd Tim Wilson as Priest in Charge, together with Geraldine Skinner as Reader with Pastoral Care, and Revd David Miller as Assistant Minister. Bolnhurst thus becomes part of the two Benefices of: “Bolnhurst with Keysoe”, and “Wilden with Colmworth and Ravensden”.
Vision [for five years’ time]: Bolnhurst PCC is delighted that Revd Tim Wilson is Priest in Charge until Dec 31 2022. The Benefice of Bolnhurst with Keysoe thus awaits further developments therein, linked to “Reimagining the Deanery”.
