WELCOME to this website for the Benefice of Milton and Norton - two Parishes within Stoke on Trent.
We are two friendly congregations on the outskirts of Stoke on Trent, bordering the Staffordshire Moorlands. Our parishes are within the Leek Deanery.
We are a thriving community, diverse in age, gender, interests and backgrounds - but united by our Christian faith. This faith is the cornerstone of our Parish activities. We are fortunate to have the amenities of the city nearby, and to have the ability to enjoy some beautiful scenery and countryside.
Our churches are dedicated to three of the twelve disciples chosen by Jesus: Philip and James (Milton) and Bartholomew (Norton). Like these first disciples, we seek to learn more about God, and we want to tell others the good news of what we ourselves have experienced of God's love and goodness.
It would be lovely to meet you in person, and you would be very welcome at any of our services. If you wish to know more, please don't hesitate to contact me. We hope you like what you see within this website for our churches. Have a look at what's going on, click on our parish magazine link and, if you can, come and join us. You can also see what's happening in the Diocese by clicking on The Diocese of Lichfield link. Milton is also a Fairtrade church, you can find out more about Fairtrade on our links page.
