About Us

The Benefice comprises the four parishes of Bratton, Edington with Imber, Coulston and Erlestoke. The villages run west to east along the B3098 between Warminster and Devizes in North-West Wiltshire.  (We use the acronym BECIE - which we pronounce "Becky".)

About nine services are held in Bratton each month, either in the church of St. James the Great, or in the Church Institute, seven are held in Edington Priory Church, two in St. Thomas à Becket, Coulston and one in The Church of the Holy Saviour, Erlestoke.


Each of the four churches is at the centre of community life and there is always lots going on, including fairs, concerts, workshops, book-swaps, lunches, study groups etc.


Across the Benefice we hold a wide variety of services to suit everyone, from traditional Holy Communion services to Café Church and many others in between.
