The Mid Loes Benefice comprises eight parishes situated a couple of miles south-west of Framlingham in Suffolk. Their populations vary between about fifty and just over four hundred. The 2001 census gave a total population of 1672.


All the churches are of central churchmanship, and the worship embraces Holy Communion, Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Family Services, all using both traditional and modern rites. There are occasional special services for Harvest, Rogation, Patronal Festivals, and others such as Songs of Praise, and Commemoration Services.



On the first Sunday in the month people from all the churches gather for a Benefice Communion. This service rotates round all the churches in the benefice and is always well supported.
