Church Life

Monthly Benefice Services

Benefice services are arranged on a monthly rota basis, giving each of the four Churches an opportunity for an early Sunday Holy Communion, an 11am Eucharist or Matins.  In addition there is Evensong twice a month, and All Age services in Droxford and St Andrew’s. A Taizé service is held quarterly at Corhampton Church. Churches take it in turns to hold the Benefice service when there is a fifth Sunday.  Click here for a Table of Services


Music in our main services tends to be traditional, though we do sometimes use slightly more
modern material.

There is a small, committed and enthusiastic choir which is boosted for the major festivals. We
have three regular organists. Occasionally we are supported by the Meon Valley Band.

Parochial Church Councils

The individual parishes each have a separate PCC and they meet to manage their parish finances,
the fabric and special events. We have quarterly joint PCC meetings and a joint APCM.

The Wider Church

The Meon Bridge Benefice is in the Bishop’s Waltham Deanery, in the Diocese of Portsmouth.

For what’s on in Portsmouth Cathedral, go to the What’s on page of the Cathedral Website; events range from all Sunday and weekday services, choral and other music concerts, and talks.
