The United Benefice of Silsoe, Flitton and Pulloxhill Churches
...St James the Great, Silsoe, St John the Baptist, Flitton, and St James the Apostle, Pulloxhill
We are all part of one benefice, which means we have separate churches and services, but we share one vicar, Rev Dave Bell.
We hope you enjoy browsing round this website, and we would love to see you at one of our services or events.

Some readings and prayers, following the attack in Manchester:
The Collect for Peace. O God, the author of peace and lover of concord, to know you is eternal life and to serve you is perfect freedom:
Defend us, your humble servants, in all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely trusting in your defence, may not fear the power of any adversaries; through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear; for fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not reached perfection in love. We love because he first loved us. Those who say, ‘I love God’, and hate their brothers or sisters, are liars; for those who do not love a brother or sister whom they have seen, cannot love God whom they have not seen. The commandment we have from him is this: those who love God must love their brothers and sisters also. - 1 John 4:18-21
O God lead us from death to life, from falsehood to truth. Lead us from despair to hope, from fear to trust. Lead us from hate to love, from war to peace. Let peace fill our hearts, our world, our universe. Amen
