Lois Weedon Church
St Mary and St Peter is the Parish Church of Lois Weedon and Weston with Plumpton. We are part of the Astwell Benefice (Click on this link for the website) which includes Lois Weedon, Wappenham, Helmdon, Syresham, Whitfield and Radstone. As a Benefice we are Part of the Brackley Deanery in the Diocese of Peterborough.
The Reverend Carole Peters King has moved to a new post in Salisbury. We are now in an Inter Regnum. The process of appointing a new incumbent is inevitably lengthy simply because any new applicant will need to give notice of moving and the vacancy is only officially announced and the post advertised after the current incumbent leaves.
This process has started and as part of the information any candidate needs to determine whether the post is attractive is a description of the Parishes that would fall under their ministry. Below is a link to profile of the Parish of Lois Weedon and Weston with Plumpton. Each applicant will have access to the Benefice Profile which sets out the organisation, it's aims and aspirations, candidate qualities and a description of the 6 Parish Churches and their activities which make up the Benefice.

Lois Weedon and Weston Village Trust
Did you know that "The Lois Weedon & Weston Village Trust" has existed, using a number of different names, for nearly 150 years?
Or that the Trustees of the Charity are custodians of a portion of agricultural land to the west of Weston, which was bequeathed to provide an income to help those in need within the Parishes?
Recently "The Trust" has provided small gifts at Christmas time to those who are unwell and to the elderly, as well as helping to fund the Village Christmas Meal for the over 65s.
But it also exists to give financial help to anyone living in the parishes of Lois Weedon and Weston who find themselves in need. Resources are limited so this help can only be a one off offer of assistance at the discretion of the Trustees.
If you need help yourself or know of someone who deserves to be considered, then please do make contact by phone, email or letter. This and any help the trustees can give will be completely confidential.
