Our Newsletter

The Benefice Newsletter is produced 11 times a year with a double issue covering December and January. It does not just deal with church matters but covers all organisations, events and activities in our parishes and in the surrounding area. It is very widely read and is available for a suggested minimum contribution of £1 per issue from each of our churches and from Hopes of Longtown. It is also available by subscription in electronic (PDF) format for £6 pa, or by post for a minimum contribution of £20 per annum.


It is published for the final Sunday in each month (except January), with the copy deadline falling on the Wednesday 11 days before the publication date. All dates for the next three months are published on the inside front cover of each edition and can also be found on the Calendar section of this website.


The advertising section is very popular and well used: there is always room for new advertisers. It is a valuable way for local businesses and concerns to advertise their services. Many of those who do advertise have found that the response has been extraordinarily (and financially) positive. if you would like to advertise, please contact Jill Cook on 01873 860408, email
