Welcome to the Chase Benefice

The Church of England Chase Benefice is situated across the Dorset Wiltshire border in part of the beautiful Cranborne Chase and was formed in 2001.  It is currently made up from 12 churches in the  9 parishes of Chettle, Farnham, Gussage All Saints, Gussage St Michael, Tarrant Gunville, Tarrant Hinton, Tarrant Keynston, Tarrant Monkton with Launceston and Rushton, and Tollard Royal.  The church in Tarrant Crawford is maintained by the Churches Conservation Trust and is open for one service a month from May to September each year.  Tarrant Rawston church is privately owned.


Churches in the Chase Benefice are currently open in accordance

with the rules and advice of the individual PCCs. 

Please check locally for more information or

check the August services listed for individual churches on this site. 



 If you have any questions about the day-to-day administration of the Chase Benefice or need support from the church, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

 With kind regards
