Welcome to the website for the Benefice of Hazelbury Bryan and the Hillside Parishes.



We are delighted to announce that the Revd. Diane Gingell has been appointed part-time house-for-duty priest in our benefice.

Diane will be joining the existing Ministry Group later in the Summer and hopes to move into The Rectory at Meadow View, Wonston in the not too distant future. She will be licensed to work as a Pilgrim Priest on two days a week and each Sunday. We have waited a long time for such good news and we all congratulate Diane and wish her all the very best in her new post.
