Welcome to the Avon Valley Partnership benefice. We are a group of local people of all ages and a variety of backgrounds who are united in our love for Jesus and our desire to serve others.

We have seven churches that lie on the Western edge of the New Forest, UK, in the Diocese of Winchester. The benefice is large and diverse.

Our Vision

To live the mission of Jesus

Our Aim

We are here to share the love of God by knowing Jesus and making him known to others.
