Praying for the Community


There is a Prayer Box on the wall outside the Chapel. This is for any member of our Community - that is from any village in the area - to be able to drop in the name of someone they would like us to pray for.  We don't need to know the details, just a first name is sufficient.  That person will be included in our time of prayer on the following Sunday.


In addition, at 09:30am on the first Sunday of the mont, there will bea half hour of prayer specifically for the Community.  Anyone may join us for a time of quiet or simple spoken prayer.  Our normal 10:30am service will follow after a cuppa.


Everyone is Welcome at Astcote!

The Benefice of Pattishall with Cold Higham


A very heartfelt thank you


Paul and I would like to say a very heartfelt thank you to everyone in Amelcote Benefice. The outpouring of love and affection was so emotionally challenging for both of us as we shared my last day of services with you at Pattishall and Cold Higham. The lunch brought together people for all 4 of the parishes and the gifts and cards we received were just incredible.


We have so enjoyed the last 5 ½ year with you and it is with very mixed emotions that we leave for Staffordshire where we firmly believe God is calling us to be. Thank you for everything.


If you ever find yourself between Uttoxeter and Stone and fancy a coffee, give us a ring and we will be only too happy to see you.


Once again, many thanks and may God continue to bless Amelcote benefice
