    There are three Parishes in the Benefice: St Mary the Less Allerton Bywater, St Mary’s Kippax and St Mary's Swillington. They serve the communities of Allerton Bywater, Kippax, Great Preston, Little Preston and Swillington

     
    COVID 19
    CHURCHES OPENING 
     
    Our Churches are now also open for Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals (up to 30 people allowed)
     
    As the mandatory wearing of face masks in shops and other enclosed spaces has come into force, the Church of England strongly advises that face coverings should be worn by all those attending a place of worship, including ministers, worshippers, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors, where there may be other people present; remembering that they are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus COVID-19 and that they are not a replacement for physical distancing and regular hand washing. 
     
    There are some exemptions. Please click on the link to the full guidance from the church which contains useful information about exemptions and how to wear and store a mask safely.
     
    Please keep looking here for updates or on our Facebook Pages as listed at the bottom of this page
